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.<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.
