Abstract: A programming aid for generating interface definition files for client server programs. The system and method are responsive to an input interface definition file and one or more input source code files to extract, from one such input source code file, the semantics of procedures therein intended to be called by a remote procedure call, to detect any conflicts between the extracted semantics and the input interface definition file, to generate an output interface definition file and to report said conflicts to a user. The user can thereby develop a correct interface definition file through an iterative process by modifying the output interface definition file and using it again as the input interface definition file.
