A program development facility DuMont, Mark Aurele Louis
The implementation of a unified facility for program development and maintenance is described. The prototype (named "Eighty-One") provides for the entry, editing and compilation of program text within a unified system in which source text is immediately transformed into an intermediate tree structured representation for storage. The implications of the unification of these facilities under this representation are discussed from the viewpoints of user convenience and system efficiency. Technical problems posed by the implementation are also discussed. Finally, some comments are made upon the nature of the user interface to systems of this type.
