Control flows describe the processing paths in a program. Call flows, decision flows, and statement flows each offer a different
way of understanding the procedures in a program.
Interactive Analysis offers the following tools for analyzing program control flows:
- The Program Control Flow pane displays a diagram that shows the call flow for paragraphs in a COBOL program, subroutines in
an RPG program, or procedures in a PL/I or Natural program.
- The Execution Path pane displays a hierarchical view and diagram that show the conditions that determine the flow of control
in a COBOL or PL/I program.
- The Flowchart pane displays a diagram that shows the flow of control between statements in a COBOL paragraph or PL/I procedure,
or between steps in a job or JCL procedure.
- The Animator lets you step through COBOL or Natural code displayed in a
Interactive Analysis pane.
