Analyzing and documenting DataSets

By: Bob Swart

Abstract: In this article, I'll show how to analyse BDE and dbExpress compatible datasets and produce ASCII or HTML-based documentation reproducing tables, fields, types and indices.

In this latest Dr. Bob Examines article, I'll show how to analyse BDE and dbExpress compatible datasets and produce ASCII or HTML-based documentation reproducing tables, fields, types and indices. Quite handy when reverse-engineering legacy code (or when you want to create documentation for existing systems).

The source code compiles with Delphi 5 (BDE) and Kylix (dbExpress) but should also recompile without problems in Delphi 6 for both BDE and dbExpress.
