Abstract

The article at pages 3833 to 3836 describes the use of an action table environment on a data-entry terminal which permits the host application to describe activities which are to be performed when the operator depresses a key which would cause the cursor to leave a 'primed' field. One such action is to write a message at some buffer address.
