Abstract

Abstract A system developed to overcome the limitations imposed by the original Transputer Development System (TDS2) upon file handling and graphics generation on PC-hosted systems is presented. TFGS was developed with two main objectives: to offer a programming interface consistent with popular PC-oriented languages while providing upwards compatibility with the TDS2. The techniques used to accomplish the above, and the tests that were made to evaluate the system's performance, are described. Finally, an analysis of the exhibited performance, based on a Petri net model, is given.
