PASCAL ANALYZER 4.0.1 - Measure and check your Delphi
or Borland Pascal source code (January 2007)
===================================================
Peganza Software has released version 4.0.1 of Pascal Analyzer,
a Windows program that helps Delphi and Borland Pascal developers
measure, check, and document their source code. Pascal Analyzer
(or PAL for short) is a development tool that makes software projects
of any size easier to understand and enables developers to produce
flawless and reliable code. PAL contains numerous optimization,
validation, and documentation features, which help in fine-tuning
and managing the development process. In addition, it is an extremely
easy tool to use.
Pascal Analyzer quickly pays for itself through easier maintenance,
fewer errors, improved code quality, and easier migration of projects
between programmers. Reports generated by Pascal Analyzer contain
a wealth of important information about the source code.
This data will help you better understand your source code,
and assist you in producing code of higher quality and reliability.
Pascal Analyzer spots many types of programming bugs and anomalies,
like unused variables, name conflicts, and incorrect scope.
In addition to common cross-reference reports, PAL for instance produces
class hierarchy lists, lists of side effects and warnings about unused
identifiers.
A lot of new functions have been added in version 4.0.
- time for parsing code and generating reports is now up to 25% faster
- you can specify folders and files that should be excluded from parsing
- new "Strong Warnings Report"
- new "Directives Report"
- new "To-Do Report"
- new "Module Call Tree Report"
- many new sections in existing reports
The current release 4.0.1 fixes a few small errors.
Read more at www.peganza.com/whatsnew_pal4.htm
There are currently more than 40 different reports. Alone or combined with
each other,
these reports will help you retain control over your programs not only
during their development but throughout their entire lifetime.
Some key reports:
Warnings Report - lists possible errors and anomalies
Code Reduction Report - trims the fat from your code
Complexity Report - measures your code
Uses Report - finds unnecessary units in uses lists
Call Tree Report - tracks calls between subprograms
Cross-reference Report - where identifiers are set/referenced
Reports are output as HTML, XML or ordinary ASCII.
HTML reports are suitable for web publishing. You may customize
the HTML through style sheets, and optionally use frames.

Peganza Software has released version 4.0.1 of Pascal Analyzer,
Does Pascal Analyzer scan the "uses" clause of each unit looking for
input? I have seen another analyzer that would only look at form units
"officially" added to the project.
Cheers,
Mark.

Hi Mark,
It will scan all "uses" clauses that you will let it find, not only those
added to the project file.
You can set search folders, let it search for folders on the Delphi library
path. You can also specify folders and files that would never be scanned.
Regards
Christer
