This page explains how to write Contextul LSCs (Con-LSC) in Latex, compile them into PlayGo LSC instances, and finally execute them.

In nutshell, these are the required steps:

  1. Download the PlayGo Environment.
  2. Add Latex Con-LSCs to LSC.tex.
  3. Execute the Latex2PlayGo compiler.
  4. Import the compiled file in PlayGo and execute it.

The PlayGo Environment

First you need to download (here) a PlayGo version that includes a template project and the Latex2PlayGo compiler.

After extracting the zip file you will find the following directory structure (the structure includes only directories relevant to this tutorial). Directories are marked with (D) and files with (F):

(D) PlayGo_4.0_19042017
|
(D) playgo
|
(F) playgo.exe
(D) workspace
|
(D) Latex2Lsc
|
(F) LSC.tex
(F) GeneratedLSC.lsc
(D) src
|
(F) Latex2PlayGoCompiler.java


Executin playgo.exe will start PlayGo.

Latex Con-LSC

The Latex Con-LSC Language

Our group has developed a dedicated Latex package for easily creating diagrams with a simple textual notation, and presenting them graphically.

The package, called pgf-playgo-lsc, is built upon the pgf and pgf-uml packages.

Therefore the supported LSC idioms in Latex Con-LSC is only a subset of the PlayGo LSC idioms.

The complete list of the supported idoms in Latex Con-LSC is given in the Latex Con-LSC package.
