Abstract : The Redactor is a general-purpose, open-ended data processor. Its primary function is to reduce noncomputer-compatible information into a form which a large digital computer can use. In addition, it provides a means of furnishing a nonstandard computer output. Because the system was designed to be as general-purpose as possible, the Redactor has been applied with comparative ease to many data processing programs in the past and it is anticipated that this feature of adaptability will keep the equipment useful for some time to come. This analysis presents a general description of the equipment, capabilities, and design philosophy of the Redactor system. (Author)
