Abstract : TER PROGRAMMINGIBM 360/65 computers, GATMAT system, Interactive computer graphics, Interactive text processingAn experimental system was developed for the purpose of determining the feasibility of merging graphics and text by using a digital x-y tablet input device and obtaining hard copy output on the Lexical Graphical Composer Printer at Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio. The system was implemented on an IBM 360/65 computer system using a Grafacon 1010A tablet and on IBM 2250 display terminal for operator-system communication. For this experiment the tablet was used as an extended keyboard with a grid overlay containing over 500 math symbols and special characters, which were referenced by pointing at them with a stylus.
