Brushfire™ Cross-Reference and Reporting Tool Allows FileMaker Pro Users To Quickly and Completely Analyze Scripts.


Santa Monica, California - August 8, 2001. FileMaker® Pro users will be able to analyze their database solutions more quickly than ever before with a new application called Brushfire™. Brushfire easily produces cross-reference script reports that allow intermediate and advanced FileMaker Pro users to debug, clean-up, and document their solutions. Written in C++ for speed, the Brushfire™ engine typically analyzes complex multiple file solutions in less than a minute, making Brushfire™ the fastest analyzing tool developed for the FileMaker Pro user.

Developed by Chaparral Software & Consulting Services, Inc., a leading FileMaker consulting firm, Brushfire rapidly organizes script details, cross-reference information, and errors from all files of a solution into easily usable and intuitive HTML pages.

"FileMaker systems frequently contain many scripts in multiple files which are time-consuming to modify and debug," says Russell Kohn, President of Chaparral. "Brushfire addresses this problem by helping users see the most complex aspects of their solution in one place at one time."
