The names of the output files have the following extensions, each indicating the type of data the file contains:
summary: .nsm (noe), .hsm (hb), .ssm (ss), .dsm (dis) violations: .nrv (noe), .hrv (hb), .srv (ss), .drv (dis) counts: .nrc (noe), .hrc (hb), .src (ss), .drc (dis)
These files are ASCII text files and can be printed out or read with any text editor.
The script qdbext can be used to extract data from the .?rv (violations) and .?rc (counts) files on a keyword basis (see Using qdbext and The DBAS output file format).
Additionally, you can generate a new summary file using the qsumm script. This gives a longer list of largest violations (by default only the largest three are shown for each structure). To do this, give the command:
qsumm violationsFile countsFile [maxLines] [ > outputFile]
qsumm myprot.nrv myprot.nrc 10 > myprot.nsm-newSee Using qsumm for some more details.
These can be categorized as follows:-
