%SUBSTR is valid in STRDBG too

Do you know %SUBSTR is valid in STRDBG too?

If you want to break a program when a variable has a certain value, you can use a conditional break point.

In the following example, the program breaks at statement 555 if variable EMPNAM has the value 'RAM'.

break 555 when EMPNAM = 'RAM'

Suppose you want to stop when part of a field contains a certain value?
The debugger provides a substring function that can accomplish that task. Here's the command to break if the 5th, 6th and 7th characters of EMPNAM are RAJ.

break 555 when %substr(EMPNAM 5 3) = 'RAJ'

Happy debugging!
