Abstract The ALICE accelerator is a 35MeV energy recovery linac prototype at Daresbury in the U.K. Due to the highly experimental nature of the accelerator, there has been a strong influence of accelerator physicists in the high-level control software for the machine. Starting from the underlying EPICS-based control system, a suite of interactive commissioning software has been built using traditional software approaches, such as LabVIEW, as well as experimenting with interactive, rapid prototyping programming languages, such as Mathematica. Using the EPICS Channel Access protocols, the control system is flexible and extensible. A wide range of tools can be used to develop and debug high-level software, allowing machine physicists to use the most appropriate and familiar tools for software development.
