Software Tools: EPICUR.
Abreu, Jose Luis; And Others
EPICUR (Integrated Programing Environment for the Development of Educational Software) is a set of programming modules ranging from low level interfaces to high level algorithms aimed at the development of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) applications. The emphasis is on user-friendly interfaces and on multiplying productivity without loss of quality. EPICUR has been designed and developed using modern techniques of software engineering. Version 2.0 of EPICUR is being implemented in JP1 TopSpeed Modula-2 and in Turbo Pascal 5.0, under the MS-DOS operating system. It is noted that many of EPICUR's tools are general enough to be used by a wide range of programmers. This paper describes the features of EPICUR and provides two examples to illustrate the procedures for producing basic graphics and text. The paper concludes with a description of ELECTRA, an application of EPICUR in which the basic idea is to establish relations between objects. (Author/GL)
