Abstract : This specification establishes the detailed requirements for performance, design, test, and qualification of a computer program identified as the Forms Definition Language Compiler, hereinafter referred to as FLAN. FLAN is one configuration item of the Integrated Information Support System User Interface (IISS UI). FLAN is used to compile Form Definition Language source files into binary Form Definition File format. Form Definition files are used as input to the Form Processor in displaying the forms. REVFLAN is used to create a Form Definition Language source file from one or more version 1.0 Form Definition Files which were derived from the DEC FMS utility before FLAN was implented and which had no source file. MAKING creates program variable declarations which correspond to the structure of a form and are useful to application programs which make use of Form Processor calls to PDATA and GDATA. The parser and some procedures of FLAN are used by the Forms Driven Forms Editor (FDFE), the Report Writer (RW), and the Rapid Application Generator (RAP) (all three of which are configuration items). This ensures that the language which is accepted by them is indentical.
