Waves in Motion has released DocuScript for users of FileMaker Pro. DocuScript allows users to generate reports on all of the scripts that may be embedded in a FileMaker Pro project. According to Waves in Motion:
Over the last few years, DocuScript has shown itself to be an invaluable tool for Filemaker developers looking to troubleshoot and document their projects. Now with improved script reporting and automatic problem detection, it has become even easier for developers to rediscover their scripts.
Aim DocuScript at a FileMaker project and it will extract every script in every file and quickly generate a series of reports -- starting with an overview of the files in the project, right down to the individual script steps. Click on a reference to an external script, and DocuScript instantly jumps to that script. Move through scripts step by step, or let DocuScript trace through an entire script for you and build a hierarchical report of every instruction, every external script, and every recursion.
One of the new features in DocuScript 2.0, and one that will appeal to anyone responsible for large FileMaker projects, is the small, but powerful Problem Dot. DocuScript now automatically searches through all your scripts and marks any file containing an error, including such things as broken relationships, missing fields, and missing layouts. Click on a file name and you'll find another Problem Dot next to each problem script. Click on a script and continue to follow the dots straight to the bugs.
You can generate a Problem Report that summarizes all the problems found by DocuScript, or perform your own customized searches across all the files in your project. Search for a field name, a status function, or any of the standard FileMaker terms built into the DocuScript search engine.
With all this script information gathered together, DocuScript is also the perfect tool for documenting your projects. You can add comments anywhere in the project database generated by DocuScript or easily copy the information you need into your own reports.
DocuScript requires FileMaker 5.0 running under Mac OS 7.6.1 or better on a PowerPC-equipped Macintosh. You can purchase DocuScript for $79.00 US, online from the Waves In Motion website, or upgrade your current copy for $39.00.
