Abstract

SINGLE SCREEN DEBUG The DPPX/DPS program product contains an interactive debug facility which is described in the DDPX/DPS Application Programming Reference Manual (SC 33 01 115). The Interactive debug facility shows formatted panels describing application requests being made to a given display terminal connection by an application. Both the formatted panels and the results of the application requests are displayed on the display terminal connected. The DPS Execution Debug Monitor (EDM) controls the interleaving of these two types of display and ensures that the result is entirely transparent to the application. The logical components of the connection can be visualized as follows: (a) denotes those requests generated by DPS EDM to create its own formatted panels.
