Abstract

PROBLEM SOLVED BY THIS INVENTION. This invention provides means for connecting a Displaywriter and the PROFS system, via HDDI and a 3277 device emulator. It allows a user to: 1) take a document residing on a Displaywriter diskette, and send it to the PROFS system; 2) retrieve a document from the PROFS memo prompter, and send it to a Displaywriter diskette; and 3) retrieve a document from the PROFS data base, and send it to a Displaywriter diskette. The Host Displaywriter Document Interchange (HDDI) and the Displaywriter 3277 Device Emulator (ANR) provide the document interchange between the Displaywriter and VM/370. This invention provides the controls and procedures necessary to join these products with the PROFS product.
