Universal Report 5.0
Universal Report 5.0 Ranking & Summary
Universal Report 5.0 description
Universal Report 5.0 provides a powerful reverse engineering tool for management and automatic documentation of source codes (program files). Its goal is to easily generate a structured and highly formatted overview of a given set of program codes. A session can be achieved either in a step-by-step way or in a completely automatic way.
Universal Report is not focused on a specific programming language (will run with codes in Basic, C, C++, Fortran, Java, Matlab, Pascal, Visual Basic, Borland C++ Builder, Delphi, Kylix, Visual C++, Visual Basic .Net, Visual C#, Visual J++, etc....), and you can get reports in several common formats (text, latex, html) and languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian). The universality is due to powerful heuristics that use programming languages intersection as well as possible, and examine further specific points. The tool is parameterizable both in the behavior point of view and the quality of the outputs. Moreover, some additional features are available, including spell checking, general pattern research, automatic information extraction, automatic code formating, glossary maker, graphics generator, routines reviewing system, protection with password, database reporting, and more
The intuitive interface makes Universal Report the perfect tool for both new and experienced users. The wide range of options lets end-users create reports with so many possibilities. Html output is optimized to take into account the bandwidth of the network. The attractive printed output saves time and money by increasing programming staff productivity and communication.
- Completely automatic with an intuitive interface
- Cover many programming languages
- Provide several options and parameters
- Generate an attractive and highly optimized output
- Automatic screenshots and database reporting
- Automatic changes analysis and multi-reporting
- Minimum user effort and real-time processing
- Special character sets (arabic, chinese, hebrew, japanese, korean, etc ...)
- Several output formats:The output documentation can be in html, plain text, or latex. However, html format is the most mature and featured. Important features available in the html report includes: a search script that looks for text over the entire documentation, an online commenting system that allows to post a global review for a any routine, an online annotation system that allows to insert local comments within the body of any routine., a dynamic flowchart mode that makes each block of a routine to be collapsed and expanded, a routines call graph from each routine (forward and backward), a detailed analysis and dynamic decomposition of each routine, a switch [hide/display] for comment lines and blank lines, the management of special comment tags (input, output, purpose, example, any user defined tag), an automatic screenshots from form files (VB, Delphi, C++ Builder, Kylix, Ressource files, etc...) .
- Direct reporting: Since Universal Report is not dedicated to a specific programming language and can document a mixed source code, there is a possibility to document a source code without any prior technical information. In that case, Universal Report will attempt to automatically detect extract crucial information and either continue with the documentation process or prompt on the next step of the wizard.
- Multi reporting: Universal Report can perform several independent documentation tasks at a time, regardless of the programming languages involved and the input/output locations. In such case, it produces a unified html index page that gives access to each of the generated documentations.
- Database reporting: Universal Report can read database files and generates a detailed report of the structure and elements (tables, fields, attributes).
- Automatic dowload and upload: The path of the input files to be documented could be a web location. In that case, Universal Report will make and inventory of the matching files and download them into the local disk and proceed from it. In the other hand, there is an option to automatically upload the generated documentation to a web server.
- Two way of achieving a documentation session: A documentation session can be achieved either by starting from scratch using the wizard or the direct report feature, or from a .urp file. A .urp file is generated each time a documentation task (started from scratch) is accomplished. It contains the input/output information, the elements of the code, and all parameters and preferences. Next time the same source needs to be documented, processing from its .urp file is possible more convenient. If there are new files, Universal Report will automatically detect them and will propose to include or ignore them.
- UDIFF tool: UDIFF is a file differencing tool that compares two files and reports the differences (lines added, lines changed, lines suppressed) and highlights the changes. The output has a convenient layout and is dynamic (each part can be made visible or hidden). This tool is standalone and is also part of Universal Report full distributions.
- Changes analysis and reporting: When the source code has changed, documenting from the previous .urp automatically activates the changes analysis routine of Universal Report. This result in a detailed analysis of all changes (quantitative and qualitative), which is included as part of the actual documentation.
- Fast and robust processing: Universal Report uses state-of-the-art algorithms to parse the source code and analyze its elements. The process is quiet fast and robust. There is also a possibility to start browsing the report while it is being updated from the documentation task.
- Trace/Bug handling and Live Update: There is an option that activates an automatic tracing system. In that case, each step is recorded from the wizard to the main execution of the documentation. The resulting directory with information that can help to quickly identify and fix any abnormal behavior. There is a local system that allows to send a bug notification. Moreover, there is a live update system for any Universal Report installation.
- Database documentation
- Automatic screenshoots (C++ Builder, Kylix, Delpji, Visual Basic, Visual J++, Visual Basic .Net, Visual C++, WinAPI).
