Dead Code Elimination (DCE)

Dead Code Elimination is an option in each of the main component extraction methods, but you can also perform it on a standalone basis. For each program analyzed for dead code, standalone DCE generates a component that consists of the original source code minus any unreferenced data items or unreachable procedural statements.

Note: Use the batch DCE feature to find dead code across your project. If you are licensed to use the Batch Refresh Process (BRP), you can use it to perform dead code elimination across a workspace.
