To satisfy the deadline requirements of hard real-time systems, programmers must be able to determine the maximum execution time of any task. The use of Flex, an experimental real-time language being developed for the Concord project, is examined. The Flex system embodies an empirical approach that first measures the actual timing behavior and then uses the… CONTINUE READING
