Yes, and since it makes no allowances for the way C handles character
strings (which, I freely admit, is more than a little bit meschuga, but
PL/I would be my language of choice), you try to look at a character
string variable, and you've got to go through all sorts of rigmarole to
do it.

Then, too, anything you want to look at with the ILE debugger, you have
to compile with special options, which makes for a pretty big OOPS, if
something takes 15 minutes to compile and link.

The OPM debugger adheres to the KISS principle.
