Running DIFROM to Export Data (4 of 17)

Identifying the Init Routines

DIFROM creates a routine name by appending the suffix INIT to the package's namespace. The developer is informed of the name. DIFROM determines whether a routine called nmspINIT is already on the system. If one exists, DIFROM prints a warning. The developer decides whether or not to continue.

Note that the INI* routines that DIFROM creates overlay any INI* routines with the same name that exists on the system. This situation will not cause problems when running inits. However, to avoid confusion for the user, it is suggested that previous init routines under the same namespace be deleted before rebuilding the init.
