Compiler Support for Debug Tool
The Enterprise PL/I compiler is enhanced in V3.2 to support some function in the new, optional, separately purchased IBM Debug Tool Utilities and Advanced Functions for z/OS and OS/390 V3, which includes Automonitor support for PL/I programs.
The Automonitor support automatically displays, in the Debug Tool Monitor window, the values of the variables referenced in the current statement. The values are displayed when Debug Tool gets control, for example, when you step to a statement or when a breakpoint is reached. Data items referenced by the current statement while the Automonitor is in effect are automatically selected for monitoring in the Debug Tool Monitor window and/or the Debug Tool log. Those explicitly selected for monitoring will also be displayed in the Monitor window.
