Variable Usage utility

WTSupported in traditional Synergy on Windows

 

USupported on UNIX
VSupported on OpenVMS

By default, the Variable Usage utility identifies unused local variables in each routine. It can also identify the global variables, labels, and include files that are no longer referenced in each routine or the primary source file, as well as those used by one or more local (CALLed, not XCALLed) routines. The variable usage level compiler option designates which items are reported.

To use this utility, compile using the variable usage compiler option and optionally the variable usage level compiler option, as follows:

On Windows and UNIX,

dbl ‑qvar_review[=file] ‑qreview_level=n source_file

On OpenVMs,

dibol /VAR_REVIEW[=file] /REVIEW_LEVEL=n source_file

file

The name of the generated output file. The default filename is the name of the primary source file with a .unu extension.

n

The sum of one or more of the following bit flags:

0 = Unused local variables in each routine (default)

1 = Unused global and local variables in each routine

2 = Unused labels and local variables in each routine

4 = Unused include files and local variables in each routine

8 = Unused local variables defined in the primary source file only

Valid values for n are 0 through 31. For example, using a value of 5 (1 + 4) reports on unused global and local variables and unused include files in each routine. A value of 11 (1+2+8) reports on unused labels and unused global and local variables defined in the primary source file only.
