Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is from an IBM web page:
SRCDBG
This option determines the kind of information you see on your programmable work station when using the IBM CoOperative Development Environment/400 (CODE/400) product to compile your COBOL programs.
The compiler produces source-level error information and source-level debugging information.

You cannot specify *SRCDBG and *LSTDBG together. Specify one or the other.

Note: You can only use the *SRCDBG option if you are using the IBM CODE/400 product to compile your program. If you specify this option but do not have the IBM CODE/400 product installed, the COBOL/400 compiler continues processing, but an error message is issued. For more information on this option, see the CODE/400 Debug Tool and Reference, SC09-1622.

    Not quite sure what you mean -- SRCDBG is just a parameter used when compiling programs, and is associated with debug support. So are you referring to the STRDBG command? That is an IBM supplied component of the operating system. (Goes by aliases IBM i, i5/OS, and OS/400, generally seen frequenting IBM midrange hardware.)

    As cwc mentioned, SRCDBG is just a parameter keyword. The underlying debug support normally associated with the keyword is implemented and supported by IBM, but anyone could have their own SRCDBG parameter. For a third party to instrument their own compiler/pre-compiler to the debug environment they would use APIs such as those found in the Information Center under Debugger and possibly the preprocessor related APIs found under Program and CL Command APIs.

    There was also STRSRCDBG -- an old command from (I think) an article in News 3X/400. Tom
