- Hi Andreas!
Thanks for your long and detailed answer.
Next time I'll try and clear my point better.
Well , I think I will have to do it the hard way...

Obviously I completely misunderstood you, Shahar.
If I understand you correctly now, you need a Magic program database -
persistent cross-reference information to do more sophisticated
queries against a CTL than ctrl-x allows you, together with
information gathered at runtime (code coverage,
profiles, "taskification", ...) .
This is a quite common task if it comes to migrations.
I had pretty much of that for V8, based on the MGAPI.DLL (Magic
Control File API) but its not working anymore :-(. There were however
recent discussions that Magic has this API for 9 now, too. I am not
aware of it. If you want to find out you should contact your
distributor/branch. Magic's webgrade technology f.i. is at the end
nothing much different than that.
I don't know what Magic version you are migrating and I do not really
know any pre-7 versions anyway. If there were however already a
Export Document and a profiler functionality you should look into
these, generate some documents and profiles and analyze that.
