Abstract : The Computer-Aided Prototyping System (CAPS) is an integrated environment, comprised of an integrated set of software tools, aimed at rapidly prototyping hard realtime embedded systems. The problem with the current CAPS software development environment is the absence of a CAPS User's Manual (How to Use...), which provides CAPS users with step-by-step guidelines on how to use the CAPS tools. One solution to this problem was solved by designing, developing, and creating online documentation for the CAPS User manual and Graphic Editor Reference Manuals for CAPS Release 1.1. Such an approach provides accessible visual, graphical, and textual step by step illustrations for CAPS users when interfacing and manipulating, commands and options within the CAPS User interface subsystem and Graphic Editor tool. In addition, this approach includes a glossary which helps CAPS users to understand the meaning of the difficult or specialized terms used in this environment.
