Using udb Time Travel debugger with Visual Studio Code on Linux

I've been working on using udb ( with native COBOL using Visual Studio code. So far it works ok as I can step forward and backward over code.

The problem is that I can't see any of the variables. I suspect this is because the executables don't contain any of the DWARF information used by most debuggers but instead use seperate .idy files

I can see that you do support this for Visual COBOL and Eclipse ( and would like to extend that functionality to Visual Studio Code.

I see that this is supported by IBM via the TEST(DWARF) compiler option ( and was wondering if Opentext had something similar

Currently using Micro Focus Visual COBOL Development Hub 8.0 but I can upgrade to 9.0 if you believe that will make a difference

Thank you in advance for your help.
