Type 'help' for help.
reading symbolic information ...dbx: fatal error: 1283-221 nesting depth underflow (0)

Thanks in advance to anyone who can be of help

what compiler did you use? you might want to use /ucb/cc in order to be able to use dbx, or compile with the flag -gxcoff to generate debugging information that dbx can understand
