Abstract

Disclosed is a method which allows a system programmer (or debugger) to gather diagnostic data when an operator message (referred to as a WTO in z/OS*) is issued by some program. An operator message may be the only symptom of some system problem and is often the only or first clue that a system debugger has when initially trying to diagnose the problem.
