I use STRDBG for both ILE and OPM programs. To use it for OPM, you must
compile your program with *SRCDBG. Also, when issuing the STRDBG command,
you must specify to use OPM support.

Even though it doesn't have all the features of STRISDB, it makes debugging
programs
in batch or programs that are imbeded deep within a application easy to
debug.

For example, since I am a MAPICS consultant, I may create user exit programs
that
are call by other MAPICS programs. MAPICS likes to pass a standard DS
between
all programs, making it nearly impossible to replicate without creating
another program to
pass that parm. With STRDBG, I just set my breakpoints on the source, return
to the menu
and select the options that I need to check. Once my program is called, the
source pops
right up.

If you are debugging in batch, follow these simple steps.

1. Place JOBQ on hold
2. STRSRVJOB on the submitted job
3. STRDBG on the program to debug
3a. The source will appear and a message will be issued saying that your
serviced job is not running.
      Press F12.. Don't set any breakpoints here, it won't take effect until
the job is running.
4. RLSJOBQ
5. Press F10 to begin command entry
6. DSPMODSRC
7. Set your breakpoints
8. Debug. Debug. Debug.
