EN^DIPZ: PRINT Template Compilation

PRINT templates can be compiled into M routines just as INPUT templates can be. The purpose of this DIPZ code generation is simply to improve overall system throughput.

Only regular PRINT templates can be compiled. You cannot compile Filegram, Extract, Selected Fields for Export, or EXPORT templates that are also stored in the PRINT template file.

This entry point recompiles a PRINT template without user intervention by setting the input variables:

Input Variables

The routine name.


The internal number of the template to be compiled.


The maximum size the compiled routines should reach. Consider using the $$ROUSIZE^DILF function to set this variable.
