The Text-Justifier TJ6

Unknown author (1970-06-01)

This memo describes the TJ6 type justifying program, which can be used in the production of memos, such as this one. In addition, Appendices 1, 2, and 3 of this memo contain related information about TECO, the "Selectric" and the type 37 teletype, thus gathering most of the information needed for producing write ups into one location. A sample of input to TJ6 is given in section IV and is in fact the very input used to produce this page of output. The output from TJ6 may be either justified text, with the right margin exactly aligned, as in this introduction, or it may be "filled" text, as in this introduction, with the right margin only approximately aligned. The remainder of this memo will be justified. The sections of this memo are: Introduction, Using TJ6, Console operation of TJ6 and Sample TJ6 input. Appendix 1 relates to inserting lower case letters into the TECO buffer, Appendix 2 relates to the "Selectric" output device, and Appendix 3 is how to use a type 37 Teletype.
