Method for Intelligently and Plainly Communicating System Envoronment as Conjective Assessments of Executed Constraints

      A methodology is described which allows a user to configure a
combination of system programs (or threads) running and constraints
thereof to a notification means.

      Current programming environments provide tools to identify what
is running on a computer.  A human makes assessments about the system
by evaluating a multiplicity of processes in conjunction with each
other.  An automatic method for communicating a deduction on a system
environment is needed whereby the deduction consists of a predicate
formed by multiple characteristics of the system, particularly the
combination of executable processes on said system.

      For example, a user wishes to have the voice recording "SYSTEM
WILL BECOME VERY SLOW NOW" play when the DisplayWrite* editor,
OfficeVision/2* and a Lotus Notes** requester application execute on
the same computer.  Upon detection of presence of execution of the
third of the three applications, the system will voice the configured
string to the user.  The configured presence of three applications
evaluates to a notification.  One or more of the applications must
leave the system before resetting the state for detecting the
situation again.

      This article function is provided with 3 parts, a registration
process, a detection process and a notification process.  The
registration process permits setting a...
