SETDEBUG: Verb to set the debug print and execution level
The debug level to be used throughout AIPS and its
tasks is given as an immediate argument.
Use: SETDEBUG(n) will interpret its immediate argument as a
debug level for display and task execution purposes. It
sets the parameter DBGAIP which is available through the
message include file INC:DMSG.INC for use by programmers.
This parameter is passed to tasks in a hidden way by GO
(AU2) and GTPARM. Its uses so far include:
DBGAIP > 0 : Do ZERRO2 for any File Control Block in
calls to ZERROR.
DBGAIP > 1 : Have ZERROR dump the contents of the File
DBGAIP > 10 : Have GO start tasks in local system DEBUG
mode if they have been compiled for
such execution and if any/all required
logicals have been properly set.
Adverbs: The immediate argument is the debug level.
No actual adverbs.
