Abstract

See full text

A system for permitting the view of an object or of a user interface to an application to be exchanged between different operating system environments is based on a nested, tagged file format. A view driver for creating a view of an object is provided having a simple, familiar user interface. An object having a view so created will have associated with it a view data file representing the view. The view data file is comprised of elements identified by tags. Display of a view in an arbitrary operating system environment is facilitated by a common understanding of the tags, permitting processing of the view data file even if the file contains elements, identified by understood tags, which elements themselves are not understood. An extensible file format for exchange of views between operating system environments is provided.
