Abstract:

This report summarizes research to enhance the legibility and readability of C source text. Several practical results are presented. A graphic design manual documents a graphic design schema for the appearance of C source text. It is shown that many of the recommendations for C can be transferred to other languages, such as PASCAL and ADA. A prototype tool, called the SEE compiler, was developed for generating automatically improved appearance for most C programs. A prototype program book, that uniquely identifies the nature of information necessary to maintain a program, is also developed. Keywords Software maintenance Pretty printing.
