TYLOGIX's Quick Find Cross-Reference Tool

In most investigations, the first questions that comes up are

- Where is this program used?

- What does this program call?

- Where is the source for this program?

The utility in this package answers all these questions. Here is how it works: The REFRESHALL program component refreshes the cross-reference database files necessary to answer these questions. It rebuilds the data files necessary for the cross-reference to function. This program will be re-run periodically to update the database as program and file changes occur.

The PGMREF command can be used to show what programs and what files are used by a given program. With one command, it will give a picture of what a program calls 5 levels deep.

The WHEREUSED command will instantly tell you which programs, in which library use a given object, file or program.

The FINDMEMBER command will tell you anywhere in the system where a file member name is present. This command is especially useful if you are searching for a lost source file. Both source physical files and regular physical files can be found with this utility.
