Abstract : This report describes research and development undertaken to demonstrate a prototype program understanding environment in which programmers and system cooperate to extract designs from legacy software. The prototype includes several key components: an automated program understanding component; a design notebook for users to extend the automatically extracted design information; and a query answering component. The report describes accomplishments and contributions to the area of program understanding, outlines future work necessary to extend the prototype to be useful in the real applications, and presents some conclusions and lessons learned.
