REMDOC for the System/36
Computer-generated documentation for System/36 RPG and COBOL systems
REMDOC® provides System/36 users with the ability to create computer-generated documentation for RPG and COBOL systems.
- Handles multiple libraries
- Automatic processing
- Produces a comprehensive index
- Uncovers discrepancies
- Traces system flow
- Produces a system run book
- Flexible and easy to use
- Provides over 30 reports
- Handles multiple libraries. All or selected source members in up to 30 libraries can be analyzed. Multilibrary capability allows processing of RPG /COPY statements and WSU T and M specifications which refer to members in different libraries, and procedures which incorporate nested procedures in different libraries.
- Automatic processing. For source members, identifies WSU and RPG programs; DFU, SORT, and $SFGR specifications; menus; LDA data structures; and external modules referenced by AUTO and WSU. For procedure members, processes several levels of nesting; conditional OCL; and the EVOKE, INCLUDE, LIBRARY, JOBQ, and RESET OCL statements.
- Produces a comprehensive index. Complete information is provided, including a directory of all source members by category and library; a systemwide breakdown for each file with field lengths and attributes as defined in each program; a data dictionary listing attributes and usage of each field by name; a program/procedure/file name/file label cross reference; a menu/procedure cross reference; integrated file usage reports showing where files are created, updated, and deleted; simulated layouts for printed reports and screens; and an index to usage of the LDA, external switches, nondisk files, and exits to assembly language subroutines.
- Uncovers discrepancies. Fields with the same end position in a file are flagged if any differences in the field name, length, or attributes are found. Field names used in different programs are flagged if any differences in the field length or attributes are found. Source programs that would compile with a different load member name are identified.
- Traces system flow. The procedure explosion report provides a complete listing of procedures nested within other procedures, for up to 16 levels of nesting. An optional flowchart graphically shows each job step and file usage. Procedure explosions and flowcharts can be printed system-wide or for particular menus or first-level procedures.
- Produces a system run book. The precollated run book follows system flow for a menu or firstlevel procedure, and incorporates the nested procedure explosion, flowchart, printer and screen layouts, file usage, and operator display messages associated with the menu option or procedure. Narratives entered with the provided full screen text editor can also be included.
- Flexible and easy to use. Allows documentation of an entire system or selection of specific reports for designated files or procedures. Entirely menu-driven with interactive prompts.
- Provides over 30 reports.
- Source index report showing each member by type
- External modules (/COPY or F & I) by program name
- External modules (/COPY or F & I) by module name
- Program source/load discrepancies
