Old 03-09-2020

Any one knows how to turn on the trace in Micro Focus Cobol?
I googled it. I need to put READY TRACE statement, but in addition, it also said something about Compiler directive which I do not know.
My compiling statement is like
cob -xvP /src/AAA.CBL /obj/TORDCNCL.int -o /bin/AAA

check man pages of cob - probably has to do with the compiler debug option(s).

$ man cob
No manual entry for cob.

My version of Microfocus (4.1) has a utility called animate. You need the .int and the .idy in order to use it.

animate was present with mf-cobol 3 also... and in MS-cobol 4 too
Thanks for reminding me...
