Abstract

This package provides an IBM Personal Computer (PC) user with the ability to create applications such as check reconciliation, accounts payable, menu preparation, etc., using this application generator package rather than having to buy each application package separately. This package consists of two programs for use in Personal Computer 1. The screen generator program 2 permits a user to design display screens for a particular application. Screen design consists of keying onto a blank 24 X 80 display screen indicating data fields and special symbols representing the location of variable data fields (analogous to the 3270 attribute byte concept). Fields can be defined with the characteristics of high, normal, or dark intensity; alphanumeric or numeric; protected or unprotected.
