An Improved Error Diagnostics System for IBM System/360 -- 370 Assembler Program Dumps.
Kirsch, Barry M.
A system to aid in the post-mortem debugging of assembler language programs written for the IBM System/360-370 series of computers is described in this master's thesis. A user's manual for the system, with descriptions of user requirements, Job Control Language (JCL) statements, and system output, comprises the first chapter. The program logic structure is explained in the second chapter. The third chapter discusses the termination analysis routine logic, with details for each of the 15 different program interruption types handled by the system. Conclusions and directions for future work are presented in the fourth section. Finally, an appendix of sample programs, with a listing of all the JCL statements needed to use the diagnostics systems, is provided. (WDR)
