Abstract : This report documents SPARTA's work on a Phase 1 SBIR effort to plan a PC/Windows-compatible version of EOSAEL software on CD ROM. To accomplish this, SPARTA developed draft versions of the Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) for all the modules of EOSAEL. Additionally, we created individual icons for each module while maintaining conformity within the set. We implemented the GUI for the COMBIC module and successfully integrated it with the COMBIC FORTRAN code. We incorporated comprehensive on-line help capability into our COMBIC /GUI prototype and recorded the prototype on CD ROM. We demonstrated the cross-platform capability of the COMBIC/GUl prototype by installing and executing it on Macintosh and SUN UNIX platforms, generating identical COMBIC input files to that produ,9ed by our PC/Windows compatible version used for the development.
