Part of the Surveys in Computer Science book series (SURVEYS)


We consider that many of the application programs and systems used within the office such as project management programs and electronic spreadsheets operate upon documents, so we begin this chapter by defining and discussing the notions of document and document processor. We then investigate the structure of a generic document processing system flexible enough to support a variety of types of information and multimedia presentation. In the latter part of the chapter, we discuss some commercial document systems and standards.
