1. Abbrev. for programming support environment. A software system that provides support for the programming aspects of software development, repair, and enhancement. A typical system contains a central database and a set of software tools. The central database acts as a repository for all the information related to the programming activities.
PSEs vary in the general nature of their databases and in the coverage provided by, and the degree of cooperative interaction of, the set of tools and the programming languages supported. A programming support environment might be considered as a more technologically advanced form of program development system.
2. Abbrev. for project support environment. A software system that provides support for the full life cycle of software development and also the project control and management aspects of a software-intensive project. The project support environment will have all the features of a programming support environment (see above) plus software tools to support the earlier phases of software development (see CASE (upper)) and tools associated with the management and control of the project. See also IPSE.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style
American Psychological Association
- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
