Abstract

General-purpose text editors have significant drawbacks when used for document preparation. This paper describes a system designed to combine the editing and formatting power of a text editor with the simplicity and immediacy of a typewriter for document preparation. The system is implemented on a minicomputer with a simple alphanumeric visual display unit.
