Create a Texis managed indirect file. The syntax is


This function takes the argument, stores it into a newly-created file (in a directory tree controlled by the property indirectspace, here), and returns the filename as an indirect type. This is most often used in combination with fromfile to create a Texis managed file. For example:

     VALUES('JT09114', toind(fromfile('srcfile')))

The database will now contain a pointer to a copy of srcfile, which will remain searchable even if the original is changed or removed. An important point to note is that any changes to srcfile will not be reflected in the database, unless the table row's indirect column is modified (even to the same value, this just tells Texis to re-index it).
