The Berkeley Process Flow Language (BPFL) is an application- driven programming language for modern semiconductor processing. This report describes the design and implementation of a graphical editor for BPFL. Semiconductor process specifications are complex and require elaborate constructs to specify manufacturing operations, simulation inputs, and dynamic scheduling. As a programming language, BPFL simplifies the expression of such tasks. However because programming languages are not good interfaces for non-programmers, a powerful and usable editor for the language is important. A graphical editor for BPFL (BED) has been developed. BED has iconification and hyperlinks to pack more information into a small screen area.
