Running DIFROM to Export Data (3 of 17)

Package Identification

Next, DIFROM prompts the developer for the 2-4 character Package name. DIFROM uses these characters to do a lookup for a matching PREFIX on the Package file. If a match is found, DIFROM uses information from the Package file entry when building the init.

Even if no matching entry is found, the process continues. In that situation, DIFROM will prompt the developer for the necessary information that is otherwise stored in the Package file. In this way, an init can be built on-the-fly.
