  • Abstract

    Serpent is a user interface management system (UIMS) that supports the development and implementation of user interfaces, providing an editor to specify the user interface and a runtime system that enables communication between the application and the end user. This manual describes the model, syntax, and semantics of the Slang dialogue language, the language within Serpent used for the specification of user interfaces. Readers should be familiar with general UIMS concepts, have a working knowledge of programming languages, and understand the concepts described in Serpent Overview and Serpent: System Guide.
