IBM offers a program named Host Displaywriter Document Interchange (HDDI). HDDI allows a Displaywriter user to invoke two new functions. The first function transfers documents back and forth between the Displaywriters diskette and an attached VM/370 system's disk. The second function transforms documents back and forth between the Displaywriter's editable document form called OIIA L3 DCA, abbreviated here as L3, and an editable document form used on VM/370, called SCRIPT/VS. For example, the two functions allow a secretary to enter a document using a Displaywriter and then have a principal use a data processing terminal to edit it. The principal can then send it back to the Displaywriter for further editing, and so on.
