A Brief Description of the Purposes and Concepts of the Coursewriter II Preprocessor. System Memo Number Four.
Mitchell, Ron; Conner Michael
A brief description of the Coursewriter II preprocessor is provided. This preprocessor, a program written in FORTRAN IV on the CDC 6600 computer, is designed to reduce the repetition of effort that takes place from the time of the author's conception of a course to the time of its availability for on-line student instruction. The programer deals mainly with two types of information: 1) control logic or course structure information, and 2) content information. The preprocessor enables the programer to deal with the latter of these in a more natural way than Coursewriter II allows. The effectiveness of the preprocessor is currently being evaluated by using it to implement a 1500 Coursewriter II precalculus math course. (CH)
