|RSM creates reports, by default, to the screen
terminal in text mode. This output can be redirected to a text file
using the > redirection operator. For Example: rsm -fa -o
-c *.cpp > metrics.txt. RSM can also create HTML output for its
reports. These reports can be read by any HTML browser. RSM
tests its HTML output in MS Explorer and Netscape Navigator.
The -H option
tells RSM to create HTML. This type of report is not readable except through a HTML
browser. There are two ways to open an HTML report. You can run the browser
from the command line passing the desired HTML file as an argument or you can use the
"File-Open" capabilities of the browser.
HTML reports provide color and highlighted fonts for easy reading and active hyperlinks
to the source code. By default RSM creates literal hyperlinks. These include
the exact path to the file. For portability you may desire to set the hyperlinks to
be relative. This setting can be modified in the rsm.cfg configuration file.
