Abstract : In this paper we develop an approach for creating a graphical user interface (GUI) for an existing command driven mainframe program. As an example of this approach, we present an implementation using the SCA Statistical System. The windows front-end to the SCA System runs on a personal computer using Microsoft Windows. The front-end communicates with the SCA System running on a mainframe or workstation through a serial communication device. This implementation demonstrates the advantage of using such an approach.
