Quote:

The KEEP command lets you continuously view the contents of program variables in a window opened at the top of the source display. You can enter the KEEP primary command with the name of the variable or you can enter the K line command either in the Procedure Division (where the variable is referenced) or in the Data Division (where the variable is defined). If the data exceeds 30 bytes, the field becomes scrollable, and it is indicated by the MORE-> sign in the statement number area.Tables are formatted by each dimension when the KEEP command is entered at the elementary level. If the OCCURS field is not associated with an index or subscript, it can be typed over to browse through the table by each entry. Also, a relative subscript can be appended to increment or decrement the occurrences. If the data displayed is a character data type, a column template is displayed to show the length.
In other words, Xpediter is a different product -- you can see the entire variable, 30 bytes at a time, in the KEEP window. You will not be able to see the entire variable as it changes. IIRC (and I may not be recalling correctly) you can put the cursor on the variable name, hit enter, and see the entire variable -- but this is not a KEEP window, just a variable view.

Have you tried this, that seems to work for me:

please try to use - SET KEEP nn (where nn can be, for example, 10).

If you are referring to the AUTOKEEP window then the command to increase it to, say 15 lines, would be SET AUTOKEEP 15. This will separate it from the KEEP window.

or (for any language) using line command KK on the first and last lines of the block of variable definitions would do what you want.

Welcome On-Board... :)

At my current shop I'm using IBM Debugger, however, I'm not able to corelate with what you're descrbing for IBM Debugger. If there is some specific command you've used please let me know.

On the other hand, for xpediter, please try to use - SET KEEP nn (where nn can be, for example, 10).

If you are referring to the AUTOKEEP window then the command to increase it to, say 15 lines, would be SET AUTOKEEP 15. This will separate it from the KEEP window.

If these are not what you're looking for, please show some screen shots of what you see and a "dummy screen shot" of what you want - that might help us to get closure to the answer.

In IBM Debugger it comes as complete string or value of each occurance it displayes on its own unless specified.

I'm testing a COBOL program through xpeditor, however, when the control reach to open an input file, S878 abend with Region Code '10' comes.

I've searched and found that this happens because of 'Region Size'. I'm confused - in a job we can increase REGION by increasing the Region Size on EXEC by REGION=0 or on Job card. But How to do the same for a XPED testing.

Can someone please help.

Regards

Please note that for members who prefer to view our site in 'mobile style' on a computer, we have an option to switch to 'Mobile View' while on computer also. You can find this option at the bottom of the index page just above the donation chest icon.

Please Note - in mobile-view, as of now, "basic blue color scheme" is the only standard theme at the moment - so you might see "green changing to blue" while in 'mobile-view' or seeing the site on a mobile.

Enjoy! :)

QA testing for another platform, like WEB and/or client-service, since the mainframe is usually back-end.

Most of the time, Mainframe applications are at the heart of the IT environments. They are critical assets that need constant monitoring and regular updating. Traditionally, mainframe applications require a lot of time for manual testing. This includes preparation time for test designs and scenarios, actual software testing, and re-testing to ensure accurate results. It is usally claimed that as most applications require enhancements, code fixes and maintenance on a regular basis - this makes the automation of regression testing a necessity on Mainframes and this is a current trand of market.
