In the present-day text or word processing environment, the operator often requires access to a host data processor through a low cost data link for data processing and records capability. An original solution to this problem was to utilize both a text processor and a separate data display terminal, such as the IBM 3278, which was compatible with the data processor. However, with the integration of data processing and text processing capability into an overall office systems environment, the field is advancing in the direction of utilizing the display terminal associated with the text processing system as an output terminal for the host data processor.
