The report discusses the application of recent developments in web languages and machine learning of heuristics to problems in programming a flexible interface mechanism between a user and an application program. This report considers an adaptive communicator interposed between an application program and a set of inputoutput devices. The report concludes that a labeled directed graph, or web, is an appropriate data-base organization for man-machine interaction, web grammars, in the form of pattern-replacement rules, can be used to manipulate that data base, and pattern-replacement rules can be viewed as heuristics suitable for machine learning.
