The Hierarchical Simulation Language (HSL) was designed and developed to serve process-oriented simulation of discrete systems. It is interpreter-based and hence offers certain advantages, such as portability (hexdware independence) and modifiability (during program execution). An HSL model consists of two major sections. The Environment contains the specifications of the model and model control statements. The Simulator is a set of functions and processes that carry out the run-time activities… CONTINUE READING
