Debugging an ILE program

When I debug an ILE program and I reach a file operation, the debugger takes me through the list of fields one by one. Some of my files have a lot of fields and this takes a lot of time to get through. What can I do?

You simply need to compile your program (or modules and update your program) with the following keyword: OPTION(*NODEBUGIO). This will result in the debugger not stopping in the fields list.
