Computer routines to read natural text with complex formats [by] Patricia A. Graves [and others]
A description of a system of IBM 7040/44 subroutines that will accept natural-language input with complex formats--e.g., from books, journals, questionnaires, clippings, library catalog cards--prepared by any typesetting device or other machine (typewriter, keypunch, etc.). Inputs are transcribed by the computer into a standard code for machine processing and can be rearranged into any desired format for storage or output. Different kinds of information are recognized by other items. The subroutines can be used singly or together; they may be called from either FORTRAN or MAP programs. A detailed programmers' guide is included.
