Description of FORMAT, a text-processing program

FORMAT is a production program which facilitates the editing and printing of “finished” documents directly on the printer of a relatively small (64k) computer system. It features good performance, totally free-form input, very flexible formatting capabilities including up to eight columns per page, automatic capitalization, aids for index construction, and a minimum of nontext items. It is written entirely in FORTRAN IV.
