A unique comment keyword is given to a comment statement in a source code. If the comment statements are insufficient, a comment including the comment keyword is inserted in this insufficient part thereof. After this processing, the comment statements are extracted from the source code to create specification data. The specification data is displayed on a display 15. An operator completes the specification data by editing. The comment statement in the source code is replaced with the comment statement in the complete specification data based on the comment keyword being used as a key.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
