RE: working with the value of integer variables in debug



fixed

Sorry Joel, I had no luck with that problem either.  Tried all sorts of
things but none of them worked.

Here's an example of integer problems with a silly test program:
****************************************************************************
*******
                            Display Module Source



Program:   INTLOOP        Library:   JEFTST         Module:   INTLOOP

     1           *MODULE ENTRY AND MAIN PROCEDURE ENTRY

     2          1 Dindex            s              5u 0

     3          2 Dnumber           s              5  0

     4          3 C                   do        10            index

     5          4 C                   eval      number = index

     6          5 C                   enddo

     7          6 C                   eval      *inlr = *on

     8           *MAIN PROCEDURE EXIT








Bottom
Debug . . .   BREAK 5 when index = 4



F3=End program   F6=Add/Clear breakpoint   F10=Step   F11=Display variable

F12=Resume       F17=Watch variable   F18=Work with watch   F24=More keys

*******Type compatibility error occurred.*******


****************************************************************************
************
Note that index is defined as an unsigned integer.  If I try to set a
conditional breakpoint on the same line based on the value of number, it
works fine.  Displaying the value of integers works fine, but trying to
change them also results in the type compatibility error.  I haven't tried
anything with %found in debug yet, we just went to v4r3 last week and I've
just started using it in programs.  Seems to me I've had problems with
looking at the values returned by some built in functions, but I can't
remember which ones.

I tried this with an ILE program and had no problems.  Had a field defined
as 2/0 worked fine.  I would like to know if there is a way to check an
expression such as %found(filename) in the debugger.  Let me know if you can
shed some more information on the problem you are having.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, like maybe not reading it in the
manual, but I haven't found a way to do much with the value of an integer
variable while running a program in debug.  When I try something like "break
100 when x = 5" on the debugger command line (let's say x is an integer loop
counter,) I get a type compatibility error.

I realize I shouldn't be running programs in debug that I could be desk
checking, but...I am a moral degenerate.<g>
TIA
