Enhanced XINDEX for analysis of all M code stored in Data Dictionaries supported by KIDS
Revision: T4
Please use this identifier to cite or link to this publication: http://hdl.handle.net/10909/117
Purpose
-------

It has been found that XINDEX doesn't run or report on all VistA components that can be contained within a KIDS build. This creates errors of omission when trying to find other code references or compliance with the SAC.

What's New
----------
The XINDEX code here is based on the latest VA code which was relased in patch XT*7.3*140 obtained from https://hdl.handle.net/10909/11315.

The changes made here can be dividied into enhancements for XINDEX for it to be able to find and index all M code in VistA; Fileman Templates Pointer Analysis; and other enhancements to XINDEX, mostly bug fixes.

Notes
T4Samuel Habiel03-13-2018Level 3This revision includes the following changes based on user feedback. Developer for all is Sam Habiel.

* XINDEX data if data can be determined to be M code or a routine/tag pair.
* Lowercase ISVs are now recognized as valid code
* Cosmetic: user feedback when selecting files
* Implement XINDEX for all KIDS Build components (omitted from previous build)
* Dialogs changed from |dialog to |dlg: Suppresses spurious first and second line warnings on dialog entries.
* Code to parse array names did not deal with the fact that they can contain spaces. Now fixed.
* Cache Objectscript which is not valid M code will now cause a standard error in XINDEX for non-Kernel/non-Fileman packages. Kernel and Fileman are exempt and are allowed to use vendor specific features.
