FILEXREF / A New Type of Cross Reference Tool

CROSS REFERENCE TOOL CONVAL ASP

Short Description:
------------------
Cross references file and symbol relationships - source code,
batch files, documentation and more.

Long Description:
-----------------
FileXref is a new type of cross reference tool for programmers
and consultants. It will scan all your application source and
ASCII documentation files, producing cross reference information.

The reports show, for each file in your application, which other
files reference it. So FileXref lets you know what may be
impacted if you make a change.

FileXref can also be used to show application symbols (variables)
and the files which reference them. This information can help you
find bugs involving more than a single source file. You can
specify which symbols are to be included and can now exclude
symbols (like language-specific keywords), too.

What is unique about FileXref is its ability to cross reference
the complete list of text files which make up an application.
(BASIC, BAT files, C, C++, COBOL, FORTRAN, Oracle, MASM, Pascal,
PL/I, REXX, SQL, xBASE and ASCII documentation files are currently
supported.)

Another unique feature is the ability to generate the cross
reference information as data files instead of reports. You can
then load this into your database and do custom reporting.

The product will also produce a report of unreferenced files
which you can use to determine which of your source files are now
obsolete. For applications new to you it will reveal the
"top" level files and the relationships of all components one to
another.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
