Abstract:
DESIRE P is a general purpose continuous time simulation language suitable for interactive simulation, dynamic system study, mathematical modeling, process control analysis. It includes an interactive editor, file manipulation facilities, and graphic packages, making it a completely self-contained system. The PDP-11 version of DESIRE P handles 20 state variables, while the VAX/VMS version runs 150 or more. An interpreted job-control language serves for interactive program entry, editing and file operations, and for programming multirun simulation studies. The dynamic segment, containing differential equations in first-order form, is entered just like the job-control statments and accesses the same variables. DESIRE P is largely written in PASCAL, and most of it can be transferred to different computers, with little change. The PASCAL implementation proves that the high-level language can be used to program direct executing languages, still keeping efficiency and speed comparable to assembly language. The runtime compiler of DESIRE P generates fast and efficient code. DESIRE P can incorporate existing and new precompiled FORTRAN numerical integration algorithms.
