The paper compares methods of organizing data within a computer to permit many interactive computer graphic applications. A data structure is a collection of blocks of machine words beads within a subset of the computers memory. A program for processing such a structure must be able to create and destroy beads and to reference data items bit strings. The first ability is provided by LEAPS associative-memory storage allocation system. The referencing ability furnished by several procedural languages enables the programmer to design structures. However, several predesigned ring structures are useful in interactive graphics-e.g., Sketchpad or CORAL.
