Abstract : Walter is one of the experimental computer systems that is part of the Boston Community Information System Project. Walter allows you to use a UNIX system (including DEC Vaxes, IBM RTs, and Sun Workstations) connected to the DARPA internet to access a 90-day database of the New York Times. Walter implements a simple, yet powerful, full-text query language that allows you to locate information of interest. This user's manual is designed to tell you everything you need to know to use the Walter system. We have prepared this manual for new and experienced UNIX users alike. Most importantly, we hope the manual will answer all your questions about using the program.
