Abstract : The EDITSPEC System is an automated system designed to produce construction specifications from Corps of Engineers Guide Specifications. The System uses one central computer and a communications network to provide remote terminal access by Corps offices, nationwide to a central data base. This report provides computer programmers with documentation for a machine-independent scientific and engineering data-handler. The report discusses design concepts, subroutine functions, application commands, error messages, program conversion, test routines, and procedures for changing the data-handler. The data-handler has been designed to minimize the resources required for its conversion and operation. (Author)
