A multi-process user interface

Donald Petravick, Vicky White

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


MENCOM and GLOBAL MENU provide solutions for software engineering problems encountered while implementing VAX/VMS based data acquisition systems at Fermilab. Taken together, this software provides a programming philosophy that is consistent with the needs of both experimenters and DAQ group staff. MENCOM provides a user interface for developing or debugging programs ‘standalone’. The very same program may then, without even re-linking, be incorporated into a larger system of many processes, governed by the GLOBAL MENU program.
