APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • RDi v9.0.0 is used to debug a Cobol program on i.
    If a breakpoint is set on a paragraph or section,
    then the breakpoint is not honored.
    User  expects that the debugger should stop at  the first
    statement after the breakpoint, or that the tool should not
    permit setting the breakpoint on such lines at all.
    

Local fix

  • Instead of setting a breakpoint on statements similar to
    Paragraph, set it on the next executable statement.
    

Problem summary

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Users can set breakpoints on paragraph label in editor.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Users can set breakpoints on paragraph labels, but as this code
    isn't executed, the breakpoint is never hit.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Parser updated to no longer recognize paragraph labels as
    executable in the RDi 9.1.1 update.
    

Temporary fix
