From the Past to the Present: Evolution of Computing in the Sinhala Language

S. T. Nandasara IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, 2009

The Sinhala writing system used in Sri Lanka is syllabic and features as many as 2,300 glyphs. Computer equipment used to represent Sinhala language needs to facilitate this complexity, in both display and printing, without adding extra complexity to the keyboard or the input systems. This article surveys the evolution of Sinhala computing technology over the past 25 years.


Secure software architectures

M. Moriconi; Xiaolei Qian; R. A. Riemenschneider; Li Gong Proceedings. 1997 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (Cat. No.97CB36097), 1997

The computer industry is increasingly dependent on open architectural standards for their competitive success. This paper describes a new approach to secure system design in which the various representations of the architecture of a software system are described formally and the desired security properties of the system are proven to hold at the architectural level. The main ideas are illustrated ...

An Evolution of General Purpose Processing: Reconfigurable Logic Computing

2009 International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization, 2009

The historical improvements in the performance of general purpose processors have long provided opportunities for application innovation. Word processing, spreadsheets, desktop publishing, networking and various game genres are just some of the many applications that have arisen because of the increasing capabilities and the versatility of general purpose processors. Key to these innovations is the fact that general purpose processors ...


Warning: graphic content [Web formats]

B. Thomas IEEE Internet Computing, 1998

The author discusses graphic formats common to the World Wide Web, as well as a new format in the offing. He considers the Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) standard image format developed by CompuServ, JPEG standard and the Portable Network Graphic (PNG) format

  • Writers as Total Desktop Publishers: Developing a Conceptual Approach to Training

    This chapter explores a conceptually-based answer to the question of training total desktop publishers, focusing initial attention on the training of writers. It argues for developing a conceptual approach to training new users of desktop publishing and identifies some fundamental components that are related both to the process of publishing and to the quality of the document produced -- computer technology skills, problem-solving process skills, verbal skills, visual skills, and visual and verbal integration skills. The chapter then reports an observation of five writers learning to use desktop publishing and finds that the writers share problems with the computer technology, the visual skills, and the integration of the visual and verbal elements of a document. A discussion of developing conceptually-based training for desktop publishers closes the chapter.

  • Index

    Text, ConText, and HyperText presents recent developments in three related and important areas of technical communication: the design of effective documentation; the impact of new technology and research on technical writing; and the training and management of technical writers.The contributors are all authorities drawn from universities and industry who are active in defining and analyzing the role of computing in technical documentation and the role of documentation in the development of computing technology. This first synthesis of their diverse but related research provides a unique conceptualization of the field of computers and writing and documentation.The book first examines techniques for writing online documentation and the value of usability testing. It presents new research into the impact of human factors in screen design and designing online help, and looks at the impact of desktop publishing on documentation, and at visual literacy and graphic design.Artificial intelligence and documentation processing are then addressed with discussion of data acquisition, automated formatting in expert systems, and document databases; the uses of HyperText in documentation; and the future of technical writing in this new environment.Text, ConText, and HyperText concludes by examining the training and management of documentation groups: how they "learn to write" in industry, management of large-scale documentation projects and their effect on product development; and the "two cultures" of engineering and documentation.Edward Barrett is a Lecturer in the Writing Program at MIT. Text, ConText, and HyperText is included in the Information Systems series, edited by Michael Lesk.

  • Exploring the Connections Between Improved Technology—Workstation and Desktop Publishing and Improved Methodology—Document Databases

    The new desktop and workstation publishing technology presents documenters with three hurdles to overcome. First, it has been difficult to identify a comprehensive organization to integrate all the relevant hardware and software products 1. Second, the marketing of this new technology has paid scant attention to the supporting skills in typography, design, layouts, etc. which alone make the new technology effective 2, Although considerable attention is now paid to overcoming these two hurdles, a third hurdle has not yet been overcome. Little attention has been paid to creating and understanding the publishing methodologies needed to drive this publishing technology to its fullest potential.
