Program Breakpoints (Native COBOL)

  • This functionality requires a licensed version of a Micro Focus Enterprise Developer product on the same machine. See Installation for details.
  • Program breakpoints are supported only in native COBOL, and are not supported in nested programs.

Program breakpoints are breakpoints that stop execution each time a specified program or entry point within the program is called.

To set a program breakpoint:

  1. In the Activity bar, click to open the RUN AND DEBUG panel, then click the row for PROGRAM BREAKPOINTS.
  2. Click +.
  3. Type the name of the source file, without the extension, and press Enter.

    This sets the program breakpoint.

    For multi-program source files, to set a break for a sub-program, use its program-id.

To disable a program breakpoint:
