This course provides in-depth emphasis on the subsystems and interfaces useful for programming on the PowerOn Reliance system. Topics for discussion include system environment variables, implementation of makefiles, system base services (Portable Application Interfaces), System Communication Subsystem (SCS), program integration and in-line debugging macros. Additionally, writing interfaces to Distributed Graphics, Database Access, and Alarm/Events is included in the programming techniques discussed. Various C programming language projects are assigned to utilize the interfaces to these subsystems; an on-line development system is provided for program testing.
