An Easily Extensible Toolset for Tabular Mathematical Expressions
David Lorge Parnas
Dennis K. Peters
We describe the design of an open ended set of tools for manipulating
multi-dimensional tabular expressions. The heart of the toolset is a
set of modules that makes it possible to add new tools to the toolset
without having detailed knowledge of the other tools. This set of
modules, the Tool Integration Framework, supports new and existing tools
by providing abstract communication interfaces.
The framework that we describe has proven to be
a practical approach to building an extensible set of tools.
