I also included the original notes describing Auto Book in the Information Letter 7. Maybe someday we'll finish that product.
Auto Book Notes
by John Walker
Revision 6 -- July 8, 1982
(Special IL7 Version)
Auto Book is an idea for an automated document retrieval and examination system. What exists today is a prototype intended to play around with the concepts and try out bright ideas without a lot of effort. It is implemented in QBASIC on the M9900, and no effort has been expended to make it transportable. I'd rather have the convenience of trying out ideas readily than always trying to maintain compatibility.
