The Power Cat report can be used to quickly locate current or correct versions of files scattered around your not always perfectly organized filing system.   The  programs  will produce a table of contents of all directories and sub-directories which  have been scanned followed by a listing, sorted by file name, of all files selected.  Each file will carry a reference number  indicating  the  specific  directory  in the table of contents which  it  is associated with.  This format allows  more  concise  and readable reporting. Sorting is accomplished with  a high-speed assembler language quiksort routine  which  effectively eliminates  sort  time  as  a  performance factor. USER.MANUAL:  Complete instructions. On Side Two: Basic XRF is a utility program that will produce a Sorted Cross-Reference of all Variables in any Business Basic program - showing all variables used in the program followed by a list of every program line that variable is used in.  It is written in a combination of Basic and Assembler and uses sophisticated hashing and linked-list algorithms for speed and compactness.  Compiled under Basic GTO  to increase speed up to 62%.   BASIC XRF runs  automatically at the prompt,  or may be run using the Menu.Maker program by highlighting "RUN.XRF" and pressing return.       The program will prompt you  for  the  full pathname of the program to be cross-referenced, e.g.  .PROFILE/BASIC/TEST/MYPGM (This  file  should not be "Locked").  XREF will  then proceed to process  through  your  program displaying  the  current  line  number  being  processed and a clock-line display to verify that  something is happening.  The program will finally prompt you for an output  destination  for  the cross-reference listing. This may be a file or listing device such as .PRINTER. USER.MANUAL: Complete documentation.


APPLE-3-WAP-dad-08a.dsk [Catalog]APPLE-3-WAP-dad-08b.dsk [Catalog]WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARYPDS NAME: Basic ExtensionDisk ID: APPLE-3-WAP-DAD-08                BOOTABLE?: Bootable               Basic Extension is a series of Basic Invokables placed into the Public Domain by Foxware, Inc. of Salt Lake City, UT.  Basic Extension can: speed up programs; save disk space; add new functions; decrease development time.  Routines include Matrix R/W, Block and Ftype; Move and Searrarray; Con, Reboot, Reset, Bit and Upshift. Side One: Boot disk and Basic Extension Invokables. Invokables on Side One :  BIT.INV  :   Bit.inv  consists  of two routines:  'Band' and 'Bor'.  Band              performs  a  Binary AND of two integer numbers. Bor provides a              Binary OR. BLOCK.INV:   Block.inv consists of two routines:  Wblock (write block)              and Rblock (read block). Their purpose is to allow reading  and              writing of 'blocks' of information from disk drives. CON.INV  :   One  of  the  two  routines  included  in Con is 'Buff'.  It              provides the ability to: 1.  Clear the type ahead buffer of all              characters that have not yet been processed. 2. Set the size of              the type ahead buffer to any length between 0 & 127characters. FYTPE.INV:   Ftype  consists  of two routines:  Gftype (get file type) and              Cftype (change file type). They allow your program              to inspect the type of a file and/or change it. MATRW.INV  : Matrw.inv  is a group of procedures which provide high              speed disk access, and can reduce  disk  storage  usage  by              more  than  30%.    The name 'Matrw.inv' stands for 'Matrix              Read Write Invokable'. MOVE.INV   : Move  contains  two  routines:  Movenum  (Move numeric) and              Movestr  (Move  string). They  both perform similar functions.              Move works on numeric arrays while Movestr works  on  string              arrays.  Their purpose is to move strings of arrays. REBOOT.INV : Reboot zeros all memory, clears the screen, displays "INSERT              SYSTEM  DISKETTE & REBOOT"in 40 column black and white, and              hangs. Hold down the CONTROL key and press reset to reboot. RESET.INV  : Reset.inv is an invokable modual that provides the ability              to enable and disable the RESET and CONTROL-RESET              functions. If the resets are disabled, pressing RESET or              CONTROL and RESET together will have no effect. SEARARRAY.INV :Seararray searches a string array for a specified group of                characters. It is similar in function to INSTR, but acts on a                entire array instead of only one string. Also it can                ignore differences between upper and lower case letters                during the search. UPSHIFT.INV   :Upshift is a routine that  changes  all of the lower                letters in a string to upper case. Only letters are affected.                Numbers  and  symbols  are  not changed. On Side Two: ARRAY.dskC       :Information about Array routines in Basic Extension. BIT.dskC         :Information about Bit.Inv.

If you suppress    carriage returns, PowerScreen will add a space where the carriage return    would have been.
