Map routines to namespaces.


[Map.w] Routine_Name Type=Database


Caché adds entries to the CPF file automatically as you define routine mappings using the Management Portal (see the instructions below). The entries appear in a section called [Map.w] where w is the namespace name.

Each entry provides one value that maps a routine to a namespace.

Type is normally not specified. Type only needs to be specified if you want to map part of a routine to another database. Valid values for Type are: MAC, INT, INC, or OBJ.
