Release Notes
 
NEW or Modified SCANALYZER Features:

FILE/Application:

Added the Active? (Y/N) field to the Application screen to inactivate entire applications at one time. Useful for rescanning only one application.

Added the "Set All Active" and "Set All Inactive" buttons to the Application Name screen. Use the "Set All Inactive" to save time during rescans. Click on "Set All Inactive". All the applications will be set inactive. Add your new applications. Rerun your scan. The scan will be performed only on your new applications. You may also inactivate all applications and reactivate just selected ones to limit your scan time. (version 2.20)

FILE/Text to Find:

Added the "Set All Active" and "Set All Inactive" buttons to the Text to Find screen. Use the "Set All Inactive" to save time during rescans. Click on "Set All Inactive". All the previously scanned tokens will be set inactive. Add your new tokens. Rerun your scan. The scan will be performed only on your new tokens.

Added the Active? (Y/N) field Text to find Maintenance Screen.

FILE/Exclude Extension:

Added the ability to inactivate files with a particular extension during file import. Use Exclude Extension to set files such as ZIP, EXE, DLL to "N", automatically. This will make setup much easier.

EDIT/Edit Files

Added the "Set All Active" and "Set All Inactive" buttons to the File Name Maintenance screen. Use the "Set All Inactive" to save time during rescans. Click on "Set All Inactive". All the files will be set inactive. Activate selected files. Rerun your scan. The scan will be performed only on the active files. (version 2.20)

SCAN:

Scan statistics are saved in a new database file, SCANSTAT.DBF. The scan statistics can be reported from the new report pull down, "Scan Statistics Report".

100% Complete is displayed only after last file has been scanned. (version 2.20)

Language Changes:

The OTHER language category has been expanded to support more more rare languages not on our predefined list.

Added Additional Language Choices.

COBOL:

Scan is performed in columns 6-72. The entire 1-80 is placed in the results file.

FORTRAN:

Scan is performed in columns 7-72. The entire 1-80 is placed in the results file.

FOXPRO 2.5/2.6:

Add analysis of IDX (simple Index), LBX (labels), and CDX (compound index) files

FOXPRO 2.0:

Add analysis of IDX (simple Index) and CDX (compound index) files.

BROWSE RESULTS:

Added the "File Name Contains Filter". Type part of a file name to limit your result view to just those files. For example, type ".CBL" to view only the COBOL part of an application.

Added the "Full Line" and "Column Range" filters. You may now scan for your "Text Line Contains" entry in a certain range of columns. (version 2.20)

Added "c" to the list of valid Include values. The "c" means that the Y2K problems have been corrected. The ratio of the number of "c" to the number of "c" + "y" will give you an idea of how the remediation work is progressing. (version 2.20)

Changed the default for GOTO LINE from 1 to 0. "0" will always place you at the top of your filtered set of results. "1" would try to place you at Physical record number 1. If physical record 1 was not in the filtered set, you were placed at the bottom of the result set.

Added the new Sort Order, "Line Order". Line order sorts the results by line number inside of a file. You can more easily spot multiple hits by multiple tokens for a given line.

Added new Group Update/Include choice: Y->?. This allows mass update for results that require further examination.

Added new Group Update/Include choice: ?->y. This allows mass update for results that required further examination and have been determined to be significant. (version 2.20)

Added new Group Update/Include choice: ?->n. This allows mass update for results that required further examination and have been determined to be insignificant. (version 2.20)

Added new Group Update/Include choice: n->Y. This allows mass update for results that had been mistakenly marked as insignificant. The Include flag is reset to the starting value originally given by the computer during scanning. (version 2.20)

Added new Group Update/Include choice: y->Y. This allows mass update for results that had been mistakenly marked as significant. The Include flag is reset to the starting value originally given by the computer during scanning. (version 2.20)

Added Count button to quickly see how many records are contained in the filter. This is a faster process than clicking on Browse when there is an empty Filter set.

Result choices such as "Text line Contains" and sort order are kept during your entire SCANALYZER session. (version 2.20)

NOTE: YOU MUST REACTIVATE THE brresult SCREEN WHEN YOU SELECT IT FROM THE WINDOW PULL DOWN. TO REACTIVATE brresult, CLICK ON THE SCREEN OR PRESS ANY KEY.

Result Browser:

Added F2 to edit the file at the line given in the "Line No" field. Inside of edit you may open reference files, cut and paste between them, Save as a new file, or Revert back to the previously saved copy. Click on File Close to leave the file you were editing.

Changed the drop down menu from the "-" from Close to "Next Window". A Foxpro bug caused the Machine to halt when "Close" was pressed following an edit session. "Next Window" closes the result browser but doesn’t halt your machine. (disabled in version 2.20)

Browser preferences such as column size and column order are kept between sessions. (version 2.20)

You may cycle through all open files, the result table browser, and the BrResult screen. The number of reference files you have open is limited by the amount of memory you have available. (version 2.20)

You may open reference files and keep them open while changing Filter Criterion. (version 2.20)

REPORTS/SCAN Statistics Report

Added Scan Statistics Report choice.

REPORTS/Y2K Analysis Reports

Added "?" include flag to filter Results Report.

Changed sorting of results file name by line number.

Added Active? (Y/N) field to Files Report.

Added Active? (Y/N) field to Text to Find Report.

Added Exclude Extension Report.

Added Last Import Results report. This report shows the files accepted and rejected from the last ASCII text file import. The results exist until the next file import is performed.

You can improve management reporting by exporting the Estimate Summary and the Results Reports to either ASCII or EXCEL formats. You can adjust and select the lines per page and the pages you would like created for the ASCII Export. These reports can then be attached to email.

UTILITIES:

Added Delete Results menu pick. You may delete one application or all application’s scan results while preserving the rest of your setup information.

Added Import Text to Find Menu pick and screen. Setup an ASCII text file with one token per line and automatically import the list into the Text to Find database. The ASCII file can be a modified version of your cross reference listing. Remove all cross reference information except for the variable name. Import this modified file. Rerun your scan. SCANALYZER can then track where the variables are used.

Added Sort Result Data in Line Order menu pick. This option is used to increase Browse Result performance when viewing by Line Order.

OTHER:

The Text to Exclude feature speeds the analysis of results by automatically marking certain lines of code as insignificant based on your own set of text strings.

You may choose to only scan the program files, run the exclusion list against the results, or both.

SCANALYZER 2.50 can now analyze both Clipper indexes (extension NTX) and DBase III indexes (extension NDX) for a much more complete analysis of your xBASE code.

You can improve efficiency by only deleting records determined to be insignificant.
