If you like, there was a utility (written by Chris Stead)in the September 1997 issue of System iNEWS that would retrieve the source code from a DBGVIEW and put it in a source member.

The tool was called RTVSRC.

Here's a link to the article (requires a ProVIP subscription):

We have some production programs that are missing the current source.
We actually have an old version of the source, but know it is wrong, which is obvious when we put it in debug.

My question is this. If I can see it in debug, does the source exist somewhere and I cannot find it?
This is ILE COBOL, and looks fine in debug. The author(s) were relieved of their duties at least a year ago.
The typical naming conventions for source were not followed.

While in debug, can the location of the source be displayed/retrieved?

Thanks in advance,
