DWARF Symbolic Support
This release contains the first increments towards DWARF symbolic support. For information on how to get started using DWARF as a debugging format, see DWARF.
This feature is under incremental development, so not all features that are available for PROTSYM are currently available for DWARF. Currently debugging using DWARF is only supported for COBOL programs in CA InterTest for CICS. For more information on the limitations, see DWARF Incremental Release State.
A new parameter, SYMBOLIC, has been added to IN25OPTS which is used to turn on DWARF debugging. For more information, see IN25OPTS Keywords.
