Abstract

For interactive map definition (IMD) a full list process is required to dispatch the appropriate process to perform the requested function. For example, if an "E' is entered for a font, the font editor should be invoked; if it is entered for a map, the map editor should be invoked, etc. In addition, IMD full list needs to be "open ended' and support entities on the map specification library (data base). It has no prior knowledge of other entities.
