CASCADE has a rudimentary comment reporting function that allows the user to get a report on the status of the comments in a given document or set of documents. Developed as a Doc Function menu, the report generation window is shown in Figure 7.
Figure 7: Report Generation Dialog
By selecting the radio button and report type options here, the user can have a statistical summary, file list, or full comment text report generated on any of a set of documents. The first three radio box columns specify the exclusion or inclusion of certain classes of comments, and the sort keys specify the order in which the comments are sorted. At the current time this report always generates information by file.
