I want to pass values to the variables while debugging the program.
Example: Suppose The program has variables VAR1, VAR2 , VAR3 .. VAR10.
I want to pass the values to those variables using dataset or text or csv file.
Could you please let me know how can we do that.

Re: Rdz for Z/OS Debugging : Passing Values to Variables.2013-01-24T13:51:54Z in response to SystemAdminThe RDz debugger doesn't currently support what you are trying to do.
The "Debug Console" allows you to import a file that contains commands to be sent to Debug Tool but assigning a value to a variable is not currently supported.
For the list of supported commands, start a debug session and then click in the entry field of the Debug Console view. Press Ctrl + space and a list of commands is displayed.
I suggest opening a RFE to request this feature.
I have also made the Debug Tool team aware of your requirement.

Unless I misunderstand, why not pass them in thru Linkage Section, or add an FD File and read them as input into Working Storage. See attached file
