Abstract

Word processing terminals commonly use a volatile store to edit a docum This article describes how the word processing system itself can recover from loss of text within the volatile store by means of a non-volatile keystroke store which stores every keystroke made by the operator from the time the document is fetched into the volatile edit store until the edited document is finally stored.
