Learning SDL is like learning any new language: it's easier with examples. SDL Illustrated gives you at least one example for every SDL instruction, and shows you step-by-step how to model a simplified protocol stack, including encoding and segmentation of frames. SDL is the Specification and Description Language standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). It enables you to visually design models which can be checked and debugged using the powerful tools available today. SDL also allows full autocoding of your application, without having to write a single line of code, except when communicating with non-SDL parts or optimizing performance. The book will help beginners become SDL-fluent. More advanced users can use it as a reference to learn through examples checked by a compiler how to master high calibre features such as inheritance or context parameters. UML users will realize how SDL, thanks to its incredible simulation and autocoding potential, efficiently complements and formalizes UML analysis models. Features: 308 figures for in depth understanding of SDL syntax and behaviour; Easy to read even for beginners; All examples and SDL figures are compiled, except SDL-2000 parts not yet implemented; Full coverage of SDL-92 and SDL-96; Detailed presentation of SDL-2000 and of its UML-like features; Migration to SDL-2000.An ADT is similar to a class in programming languages: it provides a data structure plus some operations to manipulate the structure. ... Strong typing means that you get an error when compiling: NEWTYPE Newtypel LITERALS LI, L2 ; ENDNEWTYPE; NEWTYPE ... 2.5.1 Predefined data Predefined data types are defined in the Annex D to recommendation Z.100. ... 41 SDL code generators generally provide extensions to SDL to specify for example the number of bits used for a dataanbsp;...
