Abstract : This paper describes a research project aimed at building and studying prototype environments for Mathematical Software. The actual measurements and experiences that should help solidify knowledge about how to build effective environments. Towards this end some speculative ideas about environment file systems and command languages are presented, along with research plans for effectively evaluating these and other design notions.
