Cataloging makes code easier to locate. It is not necessary to catalog a BASIC module to run or call it. Cataloging does not affect performance since the object code is always loaded in a dynamically extensible shared memory segment.
There are two catalogs: the account and the domain catalogs.
The Account Catalog is created with the TCL catalog command. A record is added to the Master Dictionary of the account the user is logged to. The Account Catalog is available only to VME, ODBC, PickDP and FlashCONNECT applications.
To catalog a Flash module after compiling it, type:
catalog bp module
For UNIX: Not Supported
The Domain Catalog describes domain-wise elements. The RuleModules domain catalog allows a distributed application to locate BASIC subroutines called by VB Rule Module objects or from the File Manager.
The Domain Catalog can be updated from TCL or the D3 File Manager.
To update from TCL:
Run the TCL catalog command with the (g option.
catalog bp module (g
To update from the D3 File Manager:
Right-click the modules, then select Flash Catalog.
