Load COBDDT as follows:

.DEBUG userprogram       or

.R LINK                                 
*/LOCALS userprogram/DEBUG:COBOL/G

When program is executed, it will first type
The user may then set breakpoints,  examine  locations,  etc.,  before
Note, the execution of the object program may be interupted by  typing
^C (control-C) twice and answering Y to the question
Do you want to enter COBDDT?  (Y or N)

COBDDT Commands:

ACCEPT data-name         (accept data typed on next line as new  value
                         for specified data item)
