This script is designed to identify newly-introduced EnScript types. This is achieved by comparing the EnScript types from an 'old' version of EnCase to those of a 'new' version.
In order to use the script it is necessary to first run it under the old version of EnCase in order to generate an XML-formatted list-file containing that version's EnScript types.
The script is then executed under the new version, which will use the XML file mentioned above to identify any EnScript properties, functions and classes that didn't exist in the old version.
The script also allows the user to compare two XML list files rather than comparing a single file with the EnScript types from the current version of EnCase.
The result of the comparison is shown as a data bookmark. This requires that the script be executed within the confines of an open case. In order to view the contents of a data bookmark it is necessary to click on its name; the contents will then be shown in a separate view.
The data bookmark will show all of the functions, properties and classes from the new version of the EnScript types. Any of the symbols that don't exist in the old version will be marked with an asterisk (*).
Note that this script does not identify types that have been removed nor does it identify functions whose return types or parameters have been changed, or those that have been overloaded.
