Abstract

In the past, reports generated from machine-readable data have been formatted immediately for printing, and contain the usual characteristics such as page headings and footings, page numbering, and a fixed page layout. Combining such reports with other information prepared using a text processing system such as DCF [1] or ATMS-II [2] was a laborious process of cut-and-paste to obtain camera copy suitable for publication.
