Hi folks;
I got a question concerning my current programming job.  Here's the
scenario:  I am assigned a program that requires fixing, and this
program is maybe 4 CLP's and 5 RPG programs deep into CALL's, therefore
knowing exactly (dspjob info) the files it is accessing and any
variables in a program *ENTRY PLIST is very helpful and a valuable time
saver as well as an error preventer.  Normally what I would do is this:
a) Have production user sign on to the system.
b) Identify the name the AS400 has assigned to this users job.
c) Then I would do the STRSRVJOB command on this job.
d) Then a STRDBG on the specific program I wanted processing to stop on,
for my brief (information) collection.
e) I would then allow the user to progress to the program area I wanted
to look into.
e) At program stop time I would view the PARMS in the *ENTRY PLIST of
the program and the actual files the program was pointed at.
Well guess what!  Programmers at this company are not AUTHORIZED to do
this on a production machine, this has me floored!

I would appreciate any suggestions my fellow-list-people would offer me
to somehow circumvent this perplexing problem.
Thanks very much in advance.
