Ada (Computer program language), FORTRAN (Computer program language)
The Configuration Control and Management of Trainer Systems Software has been recognized as a significant problem for many years. Many software tools are being developed for use as aids in this task. The efforts of the Department of Defense in the development of Ada and an Ada Programming Support Environment (APSE) have strongly addressed the problems of configuration control and management. However, these efforts have been targeted for Ada-based software as it is anticipated it will be the primary language of the DOD. The author feels that FORTRAN based software will require maintenance for many years even after the acceptance of Ada, and that the features of the APSE could be applicable to this task. The Ada Language System (ALS), which will soon be available, is the Army's implementation of the Ada Programming Support Environment. ALS has also been accepted by the Navy. This paper discusses the applicability of the ALS to the problem of FORTRAN-based software configuration control and management. A basic demonstration tool will be developed and analyzed. Ada is a registered trademark of the U.S. Government (Ada Joint Program Office).
