Create the PSF

To create a program structure file for an existing source file and add the updated program to a project, use the following steps:

  1. In the File view of the Workspace window, expand the project node to which you plan to add your program.
  2. Right-click the project’s Source folder and select Add/Remove Files.
  3. Locate and select your source file(s) in the Files to be added section of the dialog.
  4. Click the Add button and verify that the name of each selected source file appears in the Files in project list at the bottom of the dialog.
  5. Make sure that the check box in the Create .PSF column of the Files in Project list is marked for each source file for which you want to add a program structure file.
  6. Click OK. AcuBench creates a program structure file and inserts tags into the source file.

    When you switch to the Structure view, a new program node appears in your project. Note that the program icon is different than the icon used for new AcuBench programs that you create. This serves as a reminder that some of the workbench’s automation tools are not available with programs that have been imported into AcuBench in this manner.
