abstract class SYS.Compatibility
This class contains methods which are used to maintain compatibility with previous
classmethod SetGlobalNameTruncated(Value As %Boolean = 0)
Enable access of a global with a name which is truncated by the compiler and ends with
a "." (DEPRECATED)
When a global name is larger than 31 characters, the compiler truncates it to the first
31 characters. If the truncation results in the final character being a period ("."),
the name is illegal and should cause an error. But previous versions of the compiler did not
detect the illegal name and could create an invalid global or LOCK entry.
This method allows you to continue to access an invalid global that was created under the
old version, or to continue using LOCK operations on an invalid name.
You should call this method at system startup only if you have invalid globals that need
to be accessed. It is meant for compatibility only, until you can migrate your global
structure to use a valid global name, or convert your LOCK code to use a valid name.
If you do need to use this method, edit your SYSTEM^%ZSTART or ZSTU code and call it
Value = 0 - (Default) Do not allow a 31 character global name to end in "."
Value = 1 - Allow a 31 character global name to end in "."
