run-time system

(programming)
(RTS, run-time support, run-time) Library code and processes which support software written in a particular language running on a particular platform. The RTS typically deals with details of the interface between the program and the operating system such as system calls, program start-up and termination, and memory management.

The multi-tasking PLC run-time system of the IndraLogic V controllers from Bosch Rexroth meets all of these requirements thanks to their extremely high speed.
The intuitive development environment, coupled with its efficient run-time system and dynamic category browser, ensures fast delivery of high quality, precise results.
The integration of WME with OSE provides an open run-time system that is compliant with the official Java specification for Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC).
Rather than emitting code directly, the ICODE macros first build up a simple intermediate representation; the ICODE run-time system then analyzes this representation to allocate registers and perform other optimizations before emitting code.
There are three components: the tools suite, run-time system, and communications package.
Other requirements include an EGA, VGA, SVGA or Hercules graphics card compatible with version 3.1 of Microsoft Windows; a hard disk drive; at least four megabytes of random access memory (RAM); a GPIB-PCII/IIA IEEE 488 card, with Windows driver software installed on the PC; the Microsoft Windows 3.1 run-time system; version 3.3 or later of DOS (version 5.x is recommended); and a pointing device, such as a Windows-compatible mouse or trackball.
The goal of ALMARVI is to develop: Adaptive, scalable, and parallelised algorithms for image and video processing Cross-domain system software stack with adaptive run-time system for efficient resource/power management and improved interoperability Concepts for continuous hardware and software adaptations Cross-domain many-core execution platform scalable with off-the-shelf heterogeneous acceleration fabrics like FPGAs, embedded GPUs, DSPs, etc.
In Wu and Larus [1994] the values given in Ball and Larus [1993] were used for the Dempster-Shafer combination method, even though the study by Wu and Larus used a different architecture, compiler, and run-time system. In this section, we show that the a priori heuristics described by Ball and Larus are sensitive to differences in architecture, compiler, run-time system, and selection of programs.
* By exporting the Legion run-time system interface and retargeting existing compilers and tools.
It is a constraint that the run-time system should support on the behavior of two or more components.
DOWL is not radically different from the few other known distributed object-oriented languages, but excels by some rather subtle advantages, e.g., the ability to circumvent distribution transparency if required, the sophisticated Trellis type system and programming environment, and the production-level quality of both language and run-time system.
Hence, inclusion of a query language, an optimizer and the corresponding run-time system was a primary design goal.
