Unreferenced Programs

This report lists all programs that are not referenced by other programs within the project. These programs must be tested to determine whether they are main programs (and therefore are not referenced) or whether they are not used and can be considered dead code.

To generate this report, in Explore Projects view, go to the Mainframe Reports list in the pane to the right. Select Dead Code Reports then double-click the desired report to display the report wizard. The Available programs area displays the resources available for report generation and allows the user to select the resources to be included in the report. Use the Name field to filter the contents of the list. Place the cursor over an icon to display a tooltip about the type of resource it displays and click it to display only the selected type of resource. To display the full name of the resource type, click the white arrow button to the left of the dialog window.

In Report generation options area, the selection indicates that the report appendix is displayed by default. Choose what additional data must be included in the appendix: show input details in appendix.

Use the arrow buttons to move the resources between the Available and Selected lists then click Finish to generate the report.

The Report summary section presents a chart that shows the Programs usage ratio.

The Report details section shows the list of unreferenced programs that were found.
