Using one X-ref package or the other...... 

They will all have to cope with AS/SET renaming fields and creating piles of
internal work variables. Please let me know if any of the X-ref packages
does this without intervention.

And remember BPCS LX is NOT "everything back in RPG"!! The base source code
is still the one generated from AS/SET - and then SSA put BMRs in the
generated RPG-code manually!

Poor souls!! Some of us are so old we can remember when SSA "lost" the
AS/SET source for ORD570 and we had to put client modifications into the
code generated..........:-(

subject: RE: [BPCS-L] X-Ref software for BPCS

One warning I will throw out is that you are on a version of BPCS that is
all AS/SET source code.  This adds some complexity to using x-ref tools like
Hawkeye's Pathfinder because they seem to expect RPG source code.  We didn't
want to generate RPG from all of our AS/SET code, so we use Pathfinder for
our custom code and non-BPCS packages.  For straight BPCS x-ref info we use
the Access database x-ref that you can download from SSA.  I'm not sure at
what version they started creating those x-refs.  We are on 8.2.  This
problem should go away with LX, since everything will be back in RPG (except
for what's in Java.  What will we do then? :)
