Abstract:

The Computer Aided Prototyping System CAPS is an integrated set of software engineering tools developed at the Naval Postgraduate School NPS. It is designed to support rapid prototyping of real-time systems. CAPS consists of four major subcomponents the graphicstext editor, the user interface, the software database system, and the execution support system. Reports from users of CAPS, particularly novices, indicated that the clumsy and unintuitive multi windowed graphicstext editor present in the system hampered the use of the tool set. This thesis presents the substitution and integration of an efficient and user-friendly syntax directed editor into CAPS. The new syntax directed editor consists of a package of seven Ada95 parsers that recognize the elements of the Prototype System Description Language PSDL and an enhanced C
