Abstract : The CAIS Reader's Guide for DoD-STD-1838 has been produced to aid readers in understanding DoD-STD-1838, the Military Standard Common Ada Programming Support Environment (APSE) Interface Set (CAIS). DoD-STD-1838 defines a set of interfaces which allows software tools resident in an APSE access to common operating system services and facilities. APSE tools are Ada programs, each of which is used for a specific development task. These tools need facilities to communicate with their environment, including other tools in that environment, which the Ada language does not provide. The CAIS can thus be regarded as providing extended interfaces between an external environment and a host system.
