<p>The algorithms and techniques used in incremental scanning and parsing of the Galaxy language are presented. Incremental compilers, programming environments that feature instantaneous change processing as well as the execution time efficiency of compiled programs and code development using the Galaxy language are discussed. It is shown that the algorithms guarantee minimal rescanning and reparsing are space and time efficient and are easily adapted to any language of equivalent class, including such languages as C and Pascal.</p>
