COBOL Core Dump

Use a COBOL Core Dump debug configuration to save a core dump file when your application crashes. You must do this in combination with the run-time tunable core_on_error, which specifies in what circumstances a core file is produced. The options are:

COBOL Project
The project that will be used while debugging.

You can debug a core dump file without a project. You need to specify the location of the debug symbols file (.idy) on the other tabs of the debug configuration.

Core Dump File
Enter the location of where a core file is stored. If you only specify the directory, and no filename, Eclipse will prompt you for the filename when the debugger starts. The filename is core or core.<pid> by default, but you can change this using the core_filename run-time tunable.
Executables Location
Identify a working directory. You can set this automatically to whichever directory you chose to store the core dump file.
