Thanks Buck.
I was hoping to be able to use it for a very large interactive program.
I will try it with a batch program and see what I get.

I am playing with RDi 9.1 (based on the time it took to get the license

the item for Code Coverage.

Can someone point me to documentation on how / when to use this and what
the output will show?

There isn't much documentation yet. Edmund wrote that there's a
document in the works. For the moment, try this:

1) Create a filter for your *PGM objects
2) Right click one and select Code Coverage
3) The Code Coverage tool will create a Code Coverage configuration for
that program and do a SBMJOB to execute the code. When the program
finishes running, a Code Coverage Report view will open.

The key limitation here is that code coverage will only work for batch
programs - if the RPG program needs to display a screen, it will fall
over when it is submitted to batch.

If you're familiar with the way Eclipse debugs Java code, you'll find
this very similar.
