z/XDC is a powerful, interactive tool for developing and testing Assembler, C/C++ and Metal C language programs in the z/OS operating system.
Using z/XDC, programmers can effectively find and correct errors in programs running in nearly any z/OS programming environment: authorized or nonauthorized, multitasking or single tasking, batch, TSO, or CICS, system exit or product exit, SVC routine or PC routine.
With c/XDC, programmers can move seamlessly between XL/C and Assembler code within the same program. You can STEP through your XL/C code as it executes, see statement operand values before and after statement execution, and display stack frames, variables, arrays and structures in real time. c/XDC functions equally well with all flavors of IBM's XL/C: C, C++, and Metal C in both 31-bit and 64-bit modes.
dump/XDC brings the z/XDC command language into the world of dump-reading.
dump/XDC allows the user to more quickly diagnose and repair problems in both internal programs AND programs run by one's customers. dump/XDC works in concert with IPCS, allowing the use of IPCS commands right along with z/XDC commands. z/XDC's powerful and comprehensive FORMAT, MAP, DMAP and LIST commands bring new clarity to the dump-reading process.
Source statement support is available for both Assembler and C language programs. Experienced IPCS users will have a whole new box of tools to use. Newer programmers may reduce their reliance upon IPCS.
