Staging Program Analysis with Code Search

Use the Code Search pane to stage the results of a batch search as input for subsequent tasks: viewing source and context, colorizing sliced code, extracting business rules, and the like. A system analyst, for example, might use Code Search to create a list of programs impacted by a change request, then create a project that contains only the source files for those programs.

Code Search searches are executed against the current project. You can also execute searches against the results of a previous search.

Note: Certain performance-intensive Code Search searches, with criteria such as Contains or Is Nested In, may be restricted to the master user.
