ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_418:  PCTE Browser Tool,  version 1.0
     The PCTE Browser Tool (PBT) is designed to graphically display
parts of a  PCTE object base. Selected graphs of objects in the object
base and the  relationships among these objects are displayed at the PBT
user's request.  The  PBT is intended to complement text-oriented
commands that are included with the  Emeraude PCTE V12 release.  
     The PBT is an instance of the Reusable Graphical Browser (RGB), a
generic  graphical browser for the display of networks of nodes and
arcs.  In the case  of the PBT, the nodes displayed by the RGB are PCTE
objects, and the arcs are  PCTE links.  PBT version 1.0 was developed
using RGB version 1.0.  The PBT is  an X Window System application, and
requires the installation of X11, Release 4 (X11R4). It is a
Motif-oriented application making use of the SA-Motif Ada bindings,
version 1.0, a commercial product of Systems Engineering Research
Corporation (SERC).
     The PBT is ultimately intended for use in an ECMA PCTE environment,
and  has been implemented using the ECMA-162 Ada programming bindings to
PCTE.  However, in the absence of a conforming ECMA PCTE implementation,
the PBT has  been built on top of the Emeraude V12 PCTE implementation,
using the subset implementation of the ECMA Ada binding developed by
Paramax STARS (version 0.2).

ASSET_A_419:  PCTE Browser Tool User Manual, version 1.0
     The PCTE Browser Tool (PBT) is an instance of the Paramax STARS
Reusable   Graphical Browser (RGB), a generic graphical browser for the
display of  networks of nodes and arcs. In the case of the PBT, the
nodes displayed by the  RGB are PCTE objects, and the arcs are PCTE
links. The PBT is a Motif-oriented X Window System application, and as
such makes use of the SA-Motif Ada bindings, a commericial product of
Systems Engineering Research Corporation (SERC).
     This tool has been developed in Ada using the Sun Ada 1.0
compilation system from Sun Microsystems.
     The PBT is ultimately intended for use in an ECMA PCTE environment
and has been implemented using the ECMA-162 Ada programming bindings to
PCTE.  However, in the absence of a conforming ECMA PCTE implementation,
the PBT has been built on top of the Emeraude V12 PCTE 1.5
implementation, using a subset  implementation of the ECMA Ada binding
developed by Paramax STARS (release 0.2).
     This document describes the general capabilities of the PBT and how
to  invoke them.  For detailed instructions on how to install or rebuild
the PBT,  consult the associated Version Description Document (VDD).
