DATABASE CROSS-REFERENCE TO PROGRAMS UTILITY 11/21/88
This program was written in dBASE and compiled using Clipper Autumn '87.
This program will search all *.prg files in the current directory. It will
provide a listing by database showing what programs USE that database. In
addition, the line # in the *.prg file will also be displayed. The main
engine to this utility involves Clipper's low-level disk access functions.
These functions(fopen,ferror,freadstr,fseek & fclose) allow the prg files
to be opened,read into a buffer & closed. Once in the buffer, I used the AT
function to search for the string 'use'. The rest of the techniques used
are pretty standard dBASE stuff. If you discover any "BUGS" or problems
please contact me, so that I may atempt to fix them. Also, if you know of
another program that contains this utility, please let me know. I wrote
this program because I couldn't find this capability in any other program.
By the way, I hereby release this program and all source code to the Public
Domain. I truly do believe in returning the favor for all the neat little
utilities that I have picked up thru this method. There are additional notes
in the dbfxref.prg file.
The following files are included the arc file:
DBFXREF.EXE - COMPILED VERSION
DBFXREF.PRG - COMPLETE dBASE SOURCE CODE
DBFXREF.DBF - FILE TO CONTAIN RESULTS FROM PROGRAM
PRGS.DBF - FILE TO CONTAIN ALL *.PRG FILE NAMES IN CURRENT DIRECTORY
