Abstract : We recognize the need for computer science students to understand real-time systems. Many universities are only now introducing courses in this area. Frequently, the first step in mastering a concept is learning the jargon of that particular community of professionals; the real-time Community is no exception. The Naval Postgraduate School's computer-aided prototyping system (CAPS) is an integrated set of software tools made for the rapid construction of real-time software prototypes. Students who learn this system must first have a basic understanding of the real-time world. This paper introduces students to that world and then ties it in with CAPS.
