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. -- James H. H.
