Benefits: The student learns how to use the Language Environment (LE) and COBOL facilities for debugging as well as how to effectively do maintenance on a module that has been debugged. The Program Binder is also discussed extensively.
Audience: COBOL programmers who need to know how to code calling and called programs (subroutines) and who need to know how to debug these programs in the LE environment; programmers who need to know how to use the Program Binder for maintenance.
Prerequisites: Basic understanding of the COBOL language, and a working knowledge of how to code JCL statements. Fundamental understanding of CALL statements and basic subroutine concepts.
