Reverse engineer from eRSSD

Over the years I have assembled quite a collection of SQL and shell scripts for reverse engineering SAP RS DDL.

Unfortunately I can't get any of them working correctly in an ASA eRSSD... the famous not-quite-100% compatibility between ASA and ASE strikes again, I think.

I am particularly interested in the rs_get% procedure bundle if anyone has that working for ASA. While the source says it is compatible with ASA I find it won't even run without compile-time errors into the eRSSD for RS 15.7.1. Even when modified to correctly create all procs I have strange things happening like rs_getrep only returning one repdef out of 600+, rs_getdbrep totally hanging and leaving behind connections running in the eRSSD, etc.

I don't insist it be that particular get of procs... anything that works for the entire RS DDL in RS 15.7.1 eRSSD would do. Heck if all I can get is working table repdefs, function strings and subscriptions I'll be a happy guy.

PS: yes I know Power Designer can do this with the SRS plug in. I need a scriptable solution that can run from Linux/UNIX bash and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. :)

Surely someone else has this issue...?

I was trying to find the original rs_get% procedures which were on - no longer available.

Any idea where I can get a copy
