Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss our experience with porting our agent-based SmartyCat software from one computing environment, the Apple Macintosh, to another, the Silicon Graphics (SGI) Indigo. A significant part of the effort goes into converting the graphical user interface (GUI) for SAL (the SmartyCat Agent Language) from the proprietary Macintosh windowing system to the more open X-windows based system of the SGI. We also discuss our current effort in integrating a VME 68030 processor card to the original Z80-based on-board computing system. The evolutionary path taken by us in developing the SmartyCat architecture is described followed by a discussion of what was learned from our experience.
