You must identify what you want the Debugger to display in a PRINT command. Repeat the command, specifying the name of a variable, record or array, or an expression.

Informix Error Code -16373 Cannot print or make assignments before execution has started.
You cannot use a LET command to assign a value to a variable, or a DUMP or PRINT command to display information about a variable or function until after execution starts. The same restriction applies after execution has terminated normally or after a CLEANUP command. Invoke the RUN or CALL command to begin execution and then repeat the command.

The VIEW command cannot display the source code of C functions or ESQL/C functions. To examine C source code, you must use the Escape feature and use an operating-system command that displays the C source file.
Informix Error Code -16376 Break or trace name name does not begin with an alpha character.
The first character in the name of a breakpoint or of a tracepoint must be a letter. The subsequent characters can be letters, numbers, or underscores ( _ ).
