This paper describes the enhancements made to the TEX environment. The goal of the enhancements is to shorten the edit-compile-debug cycle in preparing TEX documents. An important step in cutting down debugging time is the development of a DVI perviewer on a workstation with a high resolution bit- mapped display. Yet another approach we took is the integration of TEX with a powerful display-oriented editor whereby the editing, compiling, and certain pre- or postprocessing of a document may be automated. We present some of the important results of our work in this paper with a general critique on TEX that underscores our motivations.
