Service feature is designed to simplify access to the different
debugger features provided for symbols. Most facilities available
for symbols are also available through this feature.

Symbol Service dialog box and update a symbol
Highlight the name of any symbol in your program's source code
or in the Console window.
Choose View Symbol Service from the VLISP menu,
or press the Symbol Service button on the Debug
Service dialog box contains the following components:
A Name field, where you can enter or change the symbol to work
A Value field that displays the symbol's value or its initial
A series of check boxes for symbol flags
To update the value of the displayed symbol, enter an
expression in the Value field. When you press OK, VLISP evaluates
the expression and assigns its value to the symbol.
If the symbol
you specified is a protected symbol, the Value field will be
read-only. To remove protection, clear the Protect Assign check
