Abstract

This article describes a new text flow logic in word processer, which has some meta data. The merit of this logic is high performance flow.

This text was extracted from an ASCII text file.
This is the abbreviated version, containing approximately 100% of the total text.

New Method of Text Flow

      This article describes a new text flow logic in word processer,
which has some meta data.  The merit of this logic is high
performance flow.

      Referring to Fig. 1, the text(ABC...) is poured into the space
around the each rectangle which has another data.  For this, the word
processer needs much calculation to fix the flow area.  As a result,
this calculation causes performance down.

      At the new method, using the least common rectangle, the word
processor calculates easy to fix flow the area and to flow text.
