Abstract : As part of the Military Computer Family Operating System (MCFOS) project, extensions to the Ada Language System (ALS) are being constructed which allow software for the MCF computers to be developed and tested in a host/target environment. These extensions are collectively known as the ALSE. ALS facilities are used for editing, compiling, linking, and exploring Ada programs, while ALSE facilities are used to download the software into a connected MCF computer and execute the software on the MCF, thus providing state-of-the-art high level debugging and performance monitoring facilities in an embedded target environment. This paper describes the components of the ALSE from a user viewpoint, concentrating on how an applications programmer would use MCFOS and the Extended Ada Language System to develop software.
