Abstract

Object oriented schematic capture for circuit simulation D. Parsons,^ T. Kazmierski^ o Southampton Institute of Higher Education, East Park Terrace, Southampton SO9 4 WW, UK * University of Southampton, Southampton SO9 5NH, UK ABSTRACT The development of an HCI (Human Computer Interface) for circuit simulation software is an appropriate area for the exploitation of object technology. This paper describes how an object oriented graphical user interface is being developed to provide a schematic capture facility for the Alfa object oriented circuit simulation language. INTRODUCTION In approaching the issue of an appropriate paradigm for a schematic capture interface for circuit simulation, a number of issues are raised. Firstly, few programmers can approach the writing of any kind of WIMP interface in the current climate without acknowledging the firm establishment of object technology in such programming applications. Since the development of Smalltalk for the Dynabook project
