To create a debug information (.idy) file for layout file input

  1. In Eclipse, open an Enterprise Developer project that contains the COBOL program(s) on which you want to base a record layout file.
  2. On the project's COBOL properties page, set Compile for debugging to Yes, and then save the project. By default, Enterprise Developer automatically builds the project, and automatically generates an .idy file for each program in the project.
Note: Enterprise Developer writes .idy files to the output directory specified in your project properties.
