Arev and OpenInsight both store a time stamp in the binary code of compiled stored procedures. It's difficult to view the compiled code in the system editor or debugger due to line marks and null characters causing the display to appear empty. In addition, the time stamp is also stored as an internal value which requires conversion to be useful.
The following code can be used to display the time stamp in human readable form simply by passing in the name of the routine.
Function CS_GetCompileDate(Routine) * * Read a compiled routine and extract the last compiled date and time stamp. * * Params: * Routine - Name of the routine in the current OI application * * Returns: * Displays the date time in a message box. Also returns the value. * * Last Revised: 2016-04-17 Declare Function Read_Row, Index *Name of the compiled routine. Assumes current application. Convert @LOWER_CASE To @UPPER_CASE In Routine Key = '$' : Routine : '*' : @APPID<1> *Table containing compiled routines OBJTableName = "SYSOBJ" Open OBJTableName To Table Else Call FSMsg() Return '' End Read ObjCode From Table, Key Else Call Msg("Unable to read " : KEY : " from " : OBJTableName) Return '' End ObjCodeLen = Len(ObjCode) *Extract a chunk off the end of the routine ChunkLen = 50 Chunk = ObjCode[(ObjCodeLen - ChunkLen),ObjCodeLen] *Look for the code segment end marker that precedes the initials and date/time SearchToken = \00\ : \00\ : \14\ : \00\ EndCodePos = Index(Chunk, SearchToken,1) *Trim the chunk down, start at the character after the search token. *Resulting chunk has compiled initials and date/time Chunk = Chunk[(EndCodePos + Len(SearchToken)), ObjCodeLen] CompiledBy = Chunk<1> TimeChunk = Chunk<2> *Look for a NULL character at the end of the time chunk so we know where DateTime value ends EndDelimPos = Index(TimeChunk, \00\, 1) *Internal DateTime value ends 2 bytes before the end of the null char DateTimeI = TimeChunk[1, (EndDelimPos - 2)] *Convert to internal for display DateTimeO = OConv(DateTimeI,'DT2/^H') Call Msg("Progam last compiled " : DateTimeO : " by " : CompiledBy) Return DateTimeO
After copying the code into your system you can call it from TCL (Press F5 when in OI development mode) and type:
run cs_getcompiledate YOUR_ROUTINE_NAME
The code will read the SYSOBJ table where YOUR_ROUTINE_NAME name is stored and display a message box with the last compiled date time stamp.
If you're working strictly in OpenInsight you can also use the GetLastUpdate method to find the last modified time of stored procedures and additional repository types. Thanks for the reminder Daniel!
