Unknown author (1984-05)

Working Paper

This paper proposes an editing tool named TEMPEST (TEMPlate Editor for Structured Text) whose goal is to extend a text editing environment by using templates to incorporate into it some knowledge of the structure of the text that is being edited. TEMPEST's functionality is focused on the structural aspects of text editing that are not well supported by typical text editors. In addition, it uses a text-based approach which affords a wide range of applicability. A scenario is given to illustrate its use.
