Appendix H - Library Assessor
This appendix contains a complete list of all of the ACES tests which make up the library assessor. After each test name a brief description is given.
Determine whether a program library manager can list
the names of units contained within it.
Determine whether a program library manager can provide
values of specific attributes of units entered into it.
Determine support for variations or sublibraries.
Determine whether library space is being reused.
Test library sensitivity to manual aborts.
Test support for concurrent access
Determine whether the system reports a missing unit by name.
Determine whether a system has a BRING-UP-TO-DATE capability.
Determine whether a system provides a compilation
Determine whether the system supports of movement of units.
Determine the capabilities to delete units.
Determine whether the system support library creation.
Determine the presence of a library internal
consistency test capability.
Library support for large programs
Measure the disk space occupied by a NULL program.
Measure the disk space required and compilation times
for comparable generic and non-generic units.
Test for "hidden space" in a program library.
Determine whether an executable is marked obsolete when
a unit it is compiled from is removed from library.
Determine whether source text can be extracted from a
Determine whether the program library system provides
an order-of-elaboration tool.
Determine whether a program library manager can list the
unit which would be affected if a named unit is modified.
Determine whether a program library manager can
provide an estimate of the time which would be required
to rebuild a program after modifying source units.
