Description (Specifications)[edit]

Interface Programs are designed to allow a computer to communicate with its users. A Sophont using a computer for any job will find it formidably difficult to do so with no operating interface (although expertise in computer languages will help). These are generally of two types: The standard, basic, visual version with keyboard; and a more advanced, voice-activated/talking interactive version. The Interface Program will use one specific language: if another language is required, a Translator Program will be needed, or the interface will need to be replaced.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Software within Charted Space is intentionally built to work under a number of different operating systems, different technology levels of computers, and to be extensively toughened for hard use under vacuum if necessary. [7]

The Software List: The computer software list, available at nearly any software vendor or port, indicates the various programs that are available. It shows space required by a specific program in CPU or storage, its price in MCr, and its title. Also shown is a brief overview of its effects. [8]

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existing or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [8]
