Current methods of developing user interfaces for IRIS workstation application programs are inefficient. In order to help speed the development of complex graphics programs, IRIS workstation users need a toolkit that will assist in the design and implementation of user interfaces for graphics programs. This project presents the preliminary work on an interface generator for the Silicon Graphics, Inc. IRIS workstation. The NPS Interface Builder NPS IB is designed to speed the creation of application programs by allowing a user to define an interface graphically rather than by writing C code. The program provides on-screen editing, facilitated by a number of program features. NPS IB can be used to develop the basic framework of a graphics program, or can be user to enhance the capabilities of an already existing graphics application.
