Map routines to namespaces.


[Map.w] Routine_RoutineName_Type=Database


Whenever a namespace (w) contains mappings, InterSystems IRIS® data platform creates a section in the configuration parameter (CPF) file called [Map.w] for that namespace. For example, mappings for the USER namespace appear under the section [Map.USER]. The [Map.w] section contains every global mapping, routine mapping, and package mapping for that namespace.

Routine mappings take the form Routine_RoutineName, where RoutineName is the specific routine that is being mapped. Each routine entry contains a database location (Database) that contains the named routine. The specified routine become available in the w 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.

For more information about mappings, see Add Global, Routine, and Package Mapping to a Namespace.
