Managing Routine Components
ObjectScript or M routines can be managed as either component type R or INT. The functionality of these almost identical, except that INT-type components whose names contain the '.' character use this separator to produce a hierarchical structure when browsed in M-format storage (i.e. a location managing an InterSystems namespace).
The INT component type provides a more consistent name for the management of InterSystems INT components, so the R type is not normally installed on InterSystems platforms.
