metaxref - builds cross-reference file/unit/item information SYNOPSIS
metaxref [ -dhkmsV ] [ -f manifest ] [ -L dir ] DESCRIPTION
Metaxref is a program that scans all the files in your MANIFEST file and produces three files which contains information about how the files in that MANIFEST reference items defined by metaconfig's unit files. The first two files, I.fui and I.uif reference the file, unit and items sorted differently. The third file, Obsolete, dumps all the known obsolete symbols, in which file they appear and the new symbol that should be used instead. Note that obsolete symbols do not appear in the main cross-reference files, but are only listed in the Obsolete file. That's yet another incentive to use the new symbols in your sources. :-) OPTIONS
Metaxref recognizes the following options: -d Turn on debug mode. -f manifest Use an alternate manifest file. -h Print help message and exit. -k Keep temporary .MT directory. -m Assume lots of memory and swap space. This will drastically improve the symbol lookup time in your source files, at the expense of memory usage. -s Turn on silent mode. -L dir Override default library location (where the U units directory can be found). -V Print version number and exit. AUTHOR
Harlan Stenn <> FILES
LIB/dist/mcon/U/*.U Public unit files. U/*.U Private unit files I.fui Lists information sorted by file, unit and item. I.uif Lists information sorted by unit, item and file. Obsolete Lists all the obsolete symbols used by the sources. where LIB is /usr/share/dist. BUGS
Metaxref will list among the wanted items all those magic symbols defined within units on the ?M: lines. Those are relevant only when meta- config is invoked with the -M option. SEE ALSO
