Abstract : The paper describes the General Information Processing System, a computer program designed to serve a variety of information processing applications. An input deck to the program is composed of a data base and a description of the processing tasks to be performed on that data. A typical task would be to screen the data base according to given criteria and then output information from the data that met the criteria. For output, the system has flexible formatting capabilities. Included in the paper is an example of a bibliographical application, complete with a listing of the input deck and the output that was produced. Detailed instructions are given on how to prepare an input deck. A description of system implementation is included. (Author)
