c/XDC
c/XDC

c/XDC expands z/XDC’s powerful, interactive source level debugging to include IBM's XL C, C++, and Metal C.

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.

Key Abilities

Seamless Multilanguage Debugging

As a feature of the z/XDC suite, c/XDC can display either pure C Source statements, or both C and the underlying Assembler intermixed.

STEP Through Code

With c/XDC, you can use the STEP command (STEP IN/OUT/OVER) to walk through your XL/C code as it executes.

AUTOMAP Feature

c/XDC's AUTOMAP feature automatically maps your program using available DWARF data.

Comprehensive Displays

ou can display stack frames, variables, arrays and structures and then explore them with drill-down techniques.
