The most important things are:
  • Extension does not download .LIS and .MAP automatically after each build. To achieve this a user should execute "Prepare to debug" command from context menu upon appropriate project in Project explorer.
  • The debugger runs via two terminals: one for the program being debugged, one for debugger itself. Therefore user have to have additional privileges - LOG_IO, OPER, SHARE. But this allows to pause the program at any time, even if it is waiting for user input. Then user can issue commands "SET IMAGE ...", "SET MODULE /ALL" and post breakpoint at desired place.

Very good and thank you.

And on that subject, is it possible to download the entire output of help rtl and help sys_systemservices into a few documents local to VS Code? I still find it difficult to find all the APIs quickly.
