First, compile your ILE RPG program with DBGVIEW(*SOURCE).  Next,
use STRDBG.  You'll get a display with the source of the program
that you can scroll through.  To set a breakpoint, position the
cursor to the statement you want to break on and press F6.  When
you have your breakpoints set, press F12 to get back to the
command line, then call your program normally - the program source
will appear when your breakpoint is reached. Press F12 to continue
or press F10 to step through the program statement by statement.
Cursor over to any variable name and press F11 to display the
value of the variable.  When you return to the command prompt, you
can use command DSPMODSRC to see the program source again to set
additional breakpoints or watches.

This is described in more detail in the RPG Programmers Guide, but
this should be enough to get you going.  Or press F1 while
displaying the program source to display more detailed help text.

Cheers!  Hans
