Elucidative Programming
Tool Overview

There are three important tools in an elucidative programming environment. Of these, a standard Internet browser counts for one. The others are the editor used for programming and documentation, and the tool which produces the underlying browser format.

  • Our elucidative programming environment contains the following tools:

    • An elucidator which converts programs and documentation to HTML pages

    • An editor which is used for both programming and documentation purposes

    • A browser which is used for presentation of the elucidative program

The elucidator plays the role of the literate programming weave tool

In elucidative programming there is no need for a tangle tool
