List, Another ILE/COBOL newbie question. I was running a test program where I was issuing a lot of DISPLAY UPON SYSOUT messages for debug purposes. The job was cancelled by the system because "the size of the message queue for job xxx reached the maximum size". I see from the output that in addition to the lines I was interested in seeing there were lots of system-generated stuff that I did not care about. In the mainframe world, we are used to using a lot of DISPLAY UPON SYSLST (if need be) and they just get routed to a different spooled entry which is separate from any of the other reports the program may generate. It's readily accessible if you happen to need it to verify a problem and easily discarded if you don't. So, in the iSeries world, what is the "acceptable" way to create printed output for debug and tracking purposes? Coding a DISPLAY UPON SYSOUT is, of course, easier than defining and writing to a print file, but it's not a big deal if that is what must be done. Your suggestions please? TIA
