Abstract

This is a program for highlighting dates on a computer terminal screen which are in error, or past due, or which occur on a weekend or holiday, by using various colors, reverse video, and blinking. A date is highlighted when it possesses any one of several characteristics in which the user may be interested. There is a one-to-one relationship between the characteristic and the mode of highlighting. The user is able to analyze lists of dates (e.g., project activity schedules) faster and more thoroughly without the need to consult a separate calendar.
