RE: working with the value of integer variables in debug

fixed

Possible work arounds include storing the results of %founds and whatnots into 
temporary 
variables, (at least during debugging).  Example:  eval filestatus = 
%found(filename).  
Another workaround is to use indicators instead of %found.  If IBM wanted you 
to use bif's 
they'd support them in the debugger, (just sarcasm).

Have you submitted this as a Design Change Request to Kevin Toliver, the DCR 
Coordinator, 
at V234334@us.ibm.com? I'll give you a clue.  This position changes fast.  
These people 
move on to different positions as soon as they can.  Keep the phone numbers and 
addresses 
of the old people in a file.  I've had to call them up and say 'Do you remember 
when you 
were the DCR coordinator?  Who is doing that now?'  I've submitted a DCR in 
March to add 
support for nested /copy in SQLRPGLE.  Still waiting to see if it has been 
accepted.  I 
was loathe to give this info out for fear of burdening a resource I figure not 
many people 
knew about.

I used scientific notation; BREAK 5 when index = 4.00e00  It was a stab in
the dark.  I did an ATTR index and it told me CARDINAL, 2 bytes.  I can
find no manual reference for this behaviour...

As for Mr Enzien trying to eval %found(filename), I don't believe this is
supported.  The only BIFs that the debugger seems to support are %SUBSTR,
%INDEX and %VAR.  Documentation seems scanty.
