April 1, 1981 COMMANDS THAT ALTER THE CONTENTS OF STORAGE You can use the STORE, STCP, and ZAP commands to alter the contents of storage: Use the STORE command to alter the contents of specified registers and
locations in virtual machine storage. The contents of the following can
be altered: e Virtual machine storaqe locations (first-level virtual storage only) General registers Floating-point registers Control registers (if available) Program Status Word The STORE STATUS command can save certain information contained in low
storaqe. When debugging, you may find it advantageous to alter storage,
registers, or the PSW and then continue execution. This is a good
procedure for testing a proposed change. Also, you can make a temporary
correction and then continue to ensure that the rest of execution is
trouble-free. A procedure for using the STORE STATUS command when
debugging is as follows: Issue the STORE STATUS command before entering a routine you wish to
debug. When execution stops (because an address stop was reached or because
of failure), display the extended logout area. This area contains
the status that was stored before entering the routine. Issue STORE STATUS again and display the extended logout area again. You now have the status information before and after the failure.
This information should help you solve the problemc Use the STCP command to alter the contents of real storage.
command cannot alter the real PSW or real registers.
The STCP the ZAP command to modify or dump MODULE, LOADLIB, or TITLIB files. ZA-Pcan be used to modify either fixed-or variable-length r.ODULE files.
It is for use bV system support personnel only. Part 1. Debugging with VM/370 41
