Change CRTRPGPGM command to allow debug option *SRCDBG
I have a few customers who have OPM code that cannot be migrated to ILE. The conversion needs a huge project and the company is phasing in ILE as code slowly. Some code cannot be converted to ILE immediately especially if its an active program.
Debugging OPM code is not possible without the debug observability using the system debugger.
I have developers who constantly forget to prompt the command and add OPTION(*SRCDBG). This happens when promoting into production.
