Abstract : ERIC is an object-oriented programming language designed for supporting the development of intelligent, discrete, event-driven simulations. ERIC was developed as part of an ongoing research effort at Rome Laboratory (RL) to build a new generation of knowledge-based simulations that support Battle Management studies. DERIC (Distribute ERIC) is an extension of the ERIC simulation language, which was developed to exploit the natural parallelism and reduce the execution time of simulations. DERIC is upwardly compatible with ERIC; any simulation written in ERIC will run in DERIC, with few or no modifications, and is in many ways identical to ERIC. DERIC utilizes many ERIC mechanisms and has several new specialized constructs designed to facilitate parallel processing. This report is a description of the ERIC and DERIC programming languages, and how to use them to develop simulations. (KAR) P. 3
