Abstract: This utility assists conversions of BASIC-PLUS and/or
BASIC-PLUS-2 programs from PDP-11 systems to VAX/VMS by
reading the BASIC source code and reporting on lines
which contain operating-system specific dependencies.
The program can be compiled and run under VAX-11 BASIC
or under PDP-11 BASIC-PLUS-2.
Input to the utility can be either a single file-name,
or an indirect command (@filename) which names a file
which contains a list of file names to be examined.
Output from this utility consists of a report file and
summary information printed on the users terminal. The
report file lists the EDT line numbers, by file, where
system dependent code has been detected. Summary
information printed on the terminal includes a summary
by filename of the types of system dependencies
The intent is that this utility can be used to very
quickly scan a large number of files and report the
specific dependencies as well as statistics on the
overall kinds of system dependencies of the application
programs at a user site. This information can then be
used as one input to a conversion-planning process.
