Abstract : The Multilingual Static Analysis Tool (MSAT) automates the collection and reporting of software design and quality characteristics in a multilingual milieu. The goal of MSAT is to minimize the manual effort associated with the static software assessment of a target software system's design, structure, maintainability, modifications, and conformance with documented design and development standards. This report documents an investigation to enhance the basic capabilities of MSAT. The development of a prototype prologue processor which analyzes target software prologues, and the addition of a multiple level, embedded language capability for MSAT are described.
