Displaying associated storage areas

In the interactive report, the link "Associated Storage Areas" is provided in the detailed event display depending on the programming language used. What is displayed when selecting this link depends on both the programming language and whether or not a compiler listing or side file is available to Z Abend Investigator for the program:
  • For COBOL programs without a compiler listing or side file, the TGT and base locators are displayed in hexadecimal dump format.
  • For COBOL programs where a compiler listing or side file is supplied, the source declaration of all fields along with their current content is provided.
An example of the associated storage areas display for a COBOL program with source listing provided is shown in Figure 1.
