Viewing Data

Note: This topic applies to UNIX environments (remote development) only.

You can view a maximum of 200 characters in COBOL format in one window. You can scroll through the contents of this window to view other parts of the data item. You use multiple windows to monitor the same data item so that more than 200 characters can be monitored at one time. You also have the option of displaying a maximum of 128 bytes of the monitored item in hexadecimal format.

Note: Numeric values are viewed as equivalent edited PICTURE strings.

The contents of data items that you can change appear in reverse video in the monitoring windows. Keyboard keys and special keystrokes enable efficient editing of the item's contents.
