    "Environment" refers to the collection of hardware and software tools that a system developer uses to build software systems. As technology improves and user expectations grow, an environment's functionality tends to change. Over the last 20 years, the set of software tools available to developers has expanded considerably. We can illustrate this change by observing some distinctions in the terminology. "Programming environment" and "software development environment" are often used synonymously, but here we make a distinction between the two.
