Just in case anyone wants to know, "ASIS" is
an ambiguous term:

The Ada Semantic Interface Specification
(http://www.acm.org/sigada/WG/asiswg/asiswg.html)
is an ISO standard (now version 2.0) for an API
used to build tools.

The American Society for Information Science
(http://www.asis.org) is obviously a society

The Application Software Installation Server
(http://wwwinfo.cern.ch/pdp/ose/asis/) is
apparently a tool.

The confusion between the first and third causes
unfortunate difficulties in doing a web search
for an "ASIS tool to find shared variables."

Which ASIS is "standard" ?  :-) :-)
