Universal Binaries on Mac OS X for PowerPC or Intel Processors
Placitas, NM USA — December 14, 2006 – Excel Software today
announced Universal Binary editions of MacA&D and MacTranslator for
system and software modeling. MacA&D OSX 2.1 runs three times as fast
as version 2.0 on Apple’s new Intel based machines by eliminating the
need for Rosetta emulation. MacTranslator OSX 1.1 runs about five
times as fast on Intel based machines. With the new Universal Binary
applications, users enjoy native performance on either PowerPC or
Intel based Macintosh computers from the same executable.
MacA&D is a tool for system modeling and simulation, requirements
management, structured analysis and design, object-oriented modeling
with UML and data modeling of information systems. It has diagram
editors for process, data, class, state, object, structure and task
models. Each model shows a different view of the software system
integrated through a global data dictionary. C++, Java, Delphi,
Objective-C and SQL code can be generated from model and dictionary
data. Dynamic systems can be modeled, parameterized, simulated and
then presented with live charts, graphs and tables. An integrated
report generator offers standard reports plus scriptable custom
reports. The Site License edition adds multi-user team dictionary and
MacTranslator scans source code to extract design information to a
text file. That text is imported into the MacA&D modeling tool to
automatically generate UML class models, structure charts and rich
data models. Within minutes, a set of graphic models showing program
organization can be generated from unfamiliar code with minimal human
effort. Supported languages include many dialects of C, Pascal,
Basic, Fortran, C++, Java, Object Pascal, Delphi, Objective-C and SQL.
MacA&D OSX 2.1 runs at native speed on all PowerPC or Intel based
computers with Mac OS X 10.1 or later. A Single User License is $495
for the Standard edition or $1995 for the Developer edition.
MacTranslator OSX 1.1 is $495. See the company’s web site for upgrade
or site license pricing and online ordering.
Excel Software provides Windows, Macintosh and Linux tools to
thousands of developers worldwide. Capabilities include system
modeling & simulation, requirements management, software design, code
generation, reverse engineering of code to models, bug tracking, help
authoring and license management.
