Subprograms in compile listing

Postby angelin » Mon Dec 07, 2015 11:31 pm

Is there any way to expand the subprograms in compile listing? If a program calls three subprograms, I want to see all the three programs expanded in my listing. Is there any compiler option to achieve this?

No. The sub programs may have been compiled YEARS ago and source is not stored with the load module. Some sites have even discovered they are executing programs for which they have no source code.
