Hi Richard,

this was code that I obtained from Tim McCarthy when he was at Trailblazer
systems ca. 1996. I've never debugged an MI program before. Any tips on
how to do this?

To begin with, you need a compilation listing. Debugging is through the OPM debugger, by hexadecimal instruction number; all variables can be accessed through DSPPGMVAR unless their names start with periods.

When setting breakpoints, use the instruction number (I don't have a compilation listing in front of me, but I believe it's the second column, the one that shows an ascending sequence of hexadecimal numbers). For example, if the instruction of interest is at instruction number 002D, then you would set your breakpoint at '/002D' (including the slash and the single quotes, to tell the debugger that you want an instruction number rather than a HLL statement number).
