EDIS Internal Naming and Structuring Conventions
- All EDIS material resides in one directory tree `edis/'.
- Each system document resides in its own subdirectory,
together with related files.
The name of the subdirectory equals or resembles the system name.
- All system subdirectories reside in the subdirectory tree `edis/sys/'.
- EDIS meta-material resides in `edis/'.
Examples are: intro.html, guide.html, bibl.html, index.html.
- Some other EDIS material is collected in separate subdirectories under
`edis' (to be elaborated).
- All released directories are world searchable and readable.
- All HTML documents adhere, as much as possible, to the
HTML 2.0 Standard.
This allows for consistent browsing, even with text-only browsers.
- All internal links in EDIS,
that is, from EDIS documents to other EDIS documents,
are explicit and relative.
That is, they never refer to
(but always with
they never refer to file
This makes EDIS an independent subweb,
which is convenient when EDIS is accessed locally
file:', rather than `
e.g. if you have a copy of EDIS on your own machine,
possibly without Internet access.
- All xfig figures are available in three formats: *.fig, *.gif and *.x2.gif,
where *.x2.gif is a 200% enlarged version of *.gif (for zooming).
All *.gif have a transparent background color.
All *.gif included in documents are accompanied by links to *.x2.gif
(zoom) and *.fig (xfig).
- All released files are world readable.
- There is a distributed cross reference generated by
For each HTML document file
.html there is
cross reference in
(that is, with a prefixed dot).
The cross reference enables one to traverse the internal hyperlinks
towards the original document in reverse direction.
Currently, there is no direct link from a document to its cross reference.
The cross reference is primarily intented as an aid for maintaining EDIS.
- Each system document is called `
(sitting in its own subdirectory).
- It has the following sections (HTML anchor names appear in parentheses;
useful in case you want to link directly to such a section):
- Specifications (
- Properties (
- Implementations (
- Generalizations (
- Miscellaneous (
- References (
- The connection diagram resides in files `cd.*'.
- The state graph resides in files `sg.*'.
- The connection diagrams of (relevant) implementations reside in files
The number n corresponds to the item number in the
implementation list of `index.html'.
- At the bottom of the document is a trailer with links to general EDIS
pages (introduction, guide, search, bibliography, index, feedback).
