BlackBox Component Builder is an innovative IDE (integrated development environment) originally developed by Oberon microsystems of Zurich, Switzerland. Written in Component Pascal, a member of the Pascal/Modula-2/Oberon family of languages, it features efficient compilation and modern software engineering concepts such as garbage collection, strong typing, object orientation and reflection. BlackBox Component Builder is unique in that it allows program execution within the IDE itself; without starting an external operating system process. This provides for very efficient compile-load-execute cycles, comparable with scripting languages. It also enables simple interfacing to built-in IDE components. BlackBox is module based; a module is the unit of compilation and loading. Modules are used for implementing commands, background actions, libraries, graphical components and persistent documents. All module interfaces are fully described in the included help system, which also includes many tutorials.
