Abstract or Summary
  • The FLEX/REFLEX paradigm is applied to the description of a computer program system. The paradigm is shown to be relevant and appropriate to computer program systems and to advantageously display and structure the general hierarchical characteristics of computer program systems. Program systems characterized in the paradigm are described both holistically and mechanistically at each hierarchical level. This, together with an explicit description of and distinction between input quantities and output quantities, permits effective and intuitivly logical management of even large systems. The problems of program synthesis, modification, testing and validation, debugging, and documentation may be decomposed into "sub-problems" associated with each module in the hierarchical structure. Only problems relevant to the holistic behavior of the module need to be considered. Problems associated with the behavior of the elements of the module are dealt with at the next lower hierarchical level, when the element itself is considered as a module. The paradigm is also shown to be consistent and compatable with top-down structured programming.
