Abstract:

STORFACT is an alternate inputoutput device for the ANUYA-7 V Communications Terminal. STORFACT utilizes a solid state, Plasma Discharge Display module capable of displaying up to 256 characters. Associated with the display is a memory capable of holding four 256 character pages 1024 characters. The STORFACT System provides up to nine selectable, predetermined formats, including one for free text. This is accomplished by means of removable, reprogrammable Read Only Memories ROMs. A tenth format is provided by a Random Access Memory RAM. Formats are protected such that keyboard entry of data into a non-variable position is impossible. Formats, including variable data, are limited to 512 characters. Comments may be added to the end of a format message to make a total of 1024 characters. All 1024 characters are not necessarily transmitted. Editing may be accomplished by write-over of any character of variable data. Received messages are stored in a separate 1024 character memory so that receipt of a message will not interfere with message composition. Author
