Display and Print of Saved Keystrokes

Display of a description of a saved keystroke program during single-- step playback permits a review of the program for editing, etc.

With available keyboard/display word processing systems there are no means to determine the contents of a saved keystroke program in the absence of playback. This is since the program is not a text document. Also, during playback, an operator requires some indication of which keystroke is being executed. This is especially true if single-step execution and editing are permitted.

The above limitations are overcome by displaying a textual description of the next keystroke to be executed in an audit window on the top status line of the display. Also, these textual descriptionscan be used to allow the operator to print out a copy of the saved keystrokes.
