ClaM - A Classification Manager

ClaML - <IncludeDescendants>

(attributes:code, kind)

In the ICD10 for example in the chapter introductionary text there is mention of all the blocks included in that specific chapter. The IncludeDescendants automatically fills all the blocks with excact codes and texts.This means that data has only to be entered once, and hence consistency is secured in development as well as in the mainetance phase.

This chapter contains the following blocks:<IncludeDescendants kind="Block" code="I"/>

The example above instructs ClaM to collect all Class-instances of kind Block from Code "I" downwards.
