Abstract : This thesis describes the concept of an input and output filter for the Warfare Environment Simulator (WES). The filter is comprised of two computer programs which were written in the C programming language. The main program examines the input to the filter on a character by character basis, and provides two basic capabilities which are not currently available in WES. The first is the ability to edit or create files, and the second is a facility for translating abbreviations (macros) into WES commands. The macros may include values which are substituted into variables in the commands as they are sent to WES. The second program buffers the output from WES as directed by the main program to avoid an interleaving of output when a process other than WES is in use. (Author)
