Abstract: An interactive program development system which replaces compilers, linkers and debuggers required for conventional software development. The present invention comprises a new program compilation system for producing a novel type of translated structure called a code object, and an Incremental Image which forms the program image from code objects and their respective intermediate language symbols stored in a persistent symbol table. The new program compilation system operates on conventional computers having a CPU, monitor, memory system and input devices. The present invention obviates the need to halt execution of a program under development or during maintenance update to correct programming errors.
