Abstract : This report describes the software design and implementation of the front-end for the Virtual information facility of the INFOPLEX database computer. It is part of a major effort to develop a software simulation, called Software Test Vehicle, for the underlying architecture of INFOPLEX. The virtual information facility is a single level of operations situated within the Functional Hierarchy. It supports the use of virtual information, a virtual entity based on procedural relationships and derivations from physically recorded data. Upon completion, this facility will be integrated within the current implementation of the STV for the INFOPLEX Functional Hierarchy which lacks the support for virtual information processing.
