Abstract:

The Text Reporting and Editing Device Text Editor is a small scale, high speed tape processor that was developed under the initial part of U.S. Air Force Contract AF30602-3088. The machines function is to speed the preparation of error-free text for computer entry. By means of this device, data on perforated tapes may be rapidly corrected or updated via simplified pushbutton control. The machine has been described in detail in RADC-TDR-64-31, April 1964. This report describes the results of operational testing of the Text Editor in the preparation of an extensive machine file of document abstracts. The overall processes of data preparation were studied and time and cost figures were obtained. Comparisons of editing times and costs were made with respect to three other systems of editing off-line Flexowriter, on-line computer typewriter, and on-line computer with CRT display. Author
