Khoros defines formats for User Interface Specification (UIS) and Program Specification (PS) files. From such files, its code generator, Ghostwriter, creates source files and documentation. The great strength of the system is that the code fragments that make up part of the PS file are purely generic. All Khoros-related code is created by the code generator; this includes all user interface code. One could imagine using these specification files as the basis for other software systems, thus defining a universal application code format.
