Workshop on Hard Copy Line Graphics
At CMU we have recently interfaced a Xerox Graphic Printer (ex-LDX)
to the PDP-10 using a PDP-11 as in intelligent controller for the
printer. Specially designed interface and data structures permit the
PDP-11 to generate each scan line as needed without having to resort
to the brute force generation of the bit image for the whole page.
The attached pages were produced using this system with the help of a
document generation program and a character set design program. This
is something personal.
In response to several requests, we are conducting a one day workshop
on the XCRIBL system. The workshop will be held in 3124 Science Hall
at Carnegie-Mellon University on April 12. An agenda for the
workshop is attached. If you are interested in coming or sending
someone to this workshop, please contact Dr. D. R. Reddy (412-621-
6200 ext. 149), Mr. Mack Hicks (412-687-5846) or Miss M. Kostkas
(412-626-2600 ext. 141), for further information or local
arrangements. Local reservations may be made at the Webster Hall
Hotel (412-621-7700) or the Civic Center Motor Hotel (412-683-6700)
which are within walking distance of Carnegie-Mellon University.
