Rdi Debug of RPG Step Over enhancements - EXSR and Exec SQL
Currently when debugging RPG code with RDi, Step Over will step over procedure/function calls but will step into EXSR subroutine calls. It should also step over EXSR subroutine calls. Subroutines have similar use cases to subprocedures (and some shops stick with subroutines out of old habit), so there is just as much reason to want to step over a subroutine as a subprocedure.
Currently when debugging RPG code with RDi in *SOURCE view, Step Into and Step Over will have to be pressed an unknown number of times times to clear a single Exec SQL Statement. This is because the SQL Precompiler replaces Exec SQL Statements with multiple assignments and procedure calls that are invisible in *SOURCE view, but visible in *LIST view. Step Over on an Exec SQL statement in *SOURCE view should step over the invisible SQL code and skip to the first executable line after the Exec SQL Statement.
