    Object oriented programming and parallel programming are two important and evolving areas in computer science. Much research has been carried out in each of the two programming disciplines, but little effort has been put on combining the two areas. The authors discuss a major problem of parallel programming: synchronization of concurrent processes using a shared object. Discussing the example of t... View full abstract»

  • Developing a Smalltalk/V application

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):3/1 - 3/6

    The paper describes the development of a prototype VLSI circuit editor in Smalltalk/V. The motivation for the development was to explore the utility of the Smalltalk/V object-oriented language in the construction of an application that would form just one module of a potentially much more extensive and complex system-a complete VLSI design system. Thus the application itself and the development me... View full abstract»

  • Objective-C: an object-oriented language for pragmatists

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):2/1 - 2/3

    Objective-C can be regarded as a hybrid between C and Smalltalk. It was designed by Brad Cox in the early 1980s in order to bring the power of the object-oriented approach into the realm of large scale software development. The emphasis of the language is on those aspects which most assist reusability and hence productivity. It is supported by comprehensive class libraries which are modelled on th...

  • Introducing object-oriented systems

    Object-oriented technologies are rapidly making a substantial impact on the design and engineering of many kinds of software system. Their success is motivated by the increasingly widespread recognition that a complete and correct specification of requirements for a large software system cannot be articulated in advance. The techniques of object-oriented programming particularly support software r... View full abstract»

    Over the last few years, object oriented programming has emerged as the new programming paradigm for the future, promising rewards in all areas of software development. Its use in commercial environments has been limited somewhat however, by the inertia of industry to adapt to a new way of thinking about software. Its main use has until recently, been in the academic environment for purposes of re... View full abstract»

  • Simulating von-Neumann machines in an object oriented environment

    Publication Year: 1989, Page(s):5/1 - 5/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (244 KB)

    The design and implementation of VSM, (virtual stack machine) a programming system for generating and interpreting code for von-Neumann machines, is described. C++ was chosen as implementation language because it permits the use of the built-in operators of a high level language for user defined new data types. Furthermore it supports the object oriented way of programming, e.g. the principles of ... View full abstract»

    Describes the design and implementation of a hierarchical control system for flexible assembly cells. The system is innovative for two reasons: it is implemented using object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and it uses a product-centred control strategy. conventional robot control systems are either equipment oriented, where programs are sequences of commands to robots and grippers, or task ...

  • Construction of an object-oriented user interface

    Publication Year: 1989
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (40 KB)

    Describes the development of a graphical user interface for the ELLA hardware design system. The interface, called ELLAVIEW, was constructed using object-oriented design methods, Objective-C and the ICpak201 graphics toolkit. ELLAVIEW was developed by Praxis to add a more up-to-date user interface to ELLA. Direct manipulation techniques, menus, and graphical feedback are used to provide a more pro... View full abstract»

  • Object-oriented programming to build adaptable human-computer interfaces

    Research into human-computer interaction has led to a general improvement in accessibility. However, there is a group of people who have not benefited so much from this research. They are people who are so disadvantaged that they are given the label disabled. While mainstream research into human-computer interaction addresses the adaptation of the interface to users with quite subtle individual di... View full abstract»
