Hans,

While you're at it, we need the ability to post variable that can be viewed
and logged during debug. It would be nice if the DSPLY opcode (or the DEBUG)
opcode was enhanced to send the data in F1, F2, RS, to the job log or to the
pgm msg que during debug mode.  If you've used other tools, it's kind of
like having the TRACE macros that redirect a string to the Debug Output
window.
