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
cblcore (Windows), or
core.<pid> (UNIX) 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.
