Hi there. I am in the process of significantly enhancing a Pascal
Programming environment designed for high school students that is
written in MACL. At present we provide the students with descriptions
of the functional purpose of the language construct, a description
of it's data objects, etc.
For example, the writeln construct has this for a functional description:
"A Pascal language construct used to write an expression to the
screen terminated by a carriage return."
The code description lists:
You get the picture. Also, not suprisingly, since this text is rather
small I store this information inside the object that represents a
particular language construct.
Our research has indicated that the students need a great deal more
information to properly understand how to use different language constructs.
Thus, I want to provide the students with examples of how to use the
code, expanded demonstrations of how to use the code, contrasts to
other but similar language constructs, etc.
I can't store this information within the object - it's large! Does anyone
know of a simple data base management system I can use that is written
in MACL to help manage this task?
Any code or directions to code will help. Please send mail directly to
my address. If I get a bunch of interesting responses (and I know I will)
I will summarize and post.
