An incidence-matrix-driven panel system for the IBM PC

by P. Halpern, S. M. Roberts, L. Lopez
A set of programs called TRYLON is discussed which permits the application developer to design and create a set of intelligent full-screen panels. These panels serve as a user interface for application programs. The panels and the linkages between them are uncoupled from the application code, thereby reducing programming effort and development time. An incidence matrix is used to describe the graph of a network composed of the panels. Because the paths among the panels are specified by entries in the incidence matrix at panel creation time, there is no need to program the logical constructs for the network.
