Although the construction of a subsystem hierarchy makes the subject software easier to understand, it also hides many low-level details.
To view information on the immediate neighborhood around the ListADT subsystem node as it is presented within a window:
A textual Information window appears, presenting information about ListADT (in the window just activated).
This information includes the node's:
An exact interface report is typically used on a subsystem node to provide detailed dependency information about the nodes within in it (in relation to nodes outside it).
To produce an exact interface report for the ListADT subsystem:
The report appears in a Text editor window; this editor is a separate process outside the direct control of rigiedit.
The report includes three kinds of information for the selected subsystem: provisions, requirements, and internalizations. A provision is a dependency from a node inside the subsystem to a node outside the subsystem; the internal node provides at least one object. A requirement is a dependency from a node outside the subsystem to a node inside the subsystem; the internal node requires at least one object. An internalization is a dependency between two nodes inside the subsystem.
To produce information about any particular arc:
An Arc menu appears. You can bring up an Arc menu on any arc, even if it is not selected; the available choices apply to that arc.
To produce an exact interface report for the composite arc between the ListADT and ElementADT subsystems:
A record of the lower-level dependencies between the two subsystems appears in a Text editor window. This editor is a separate process outside the direct control of rigiedit.
Note: This report only works for composite arcs.
