Abstract: Document preparation is greatly aided by RUNOFF.
Automatic line fill, right margin justification,
hyphenation, pagination, index creation, and decimal
notation sectioning are among the facilities provided.
This program is an updated and enhanced version of
RUNOFF (DECUS No. 110530). This release supports the RT
operating system with a common baseline.
This version of RUNOFF has a modified hyphenation
algorithm, conforming to the UNIX V7 table and diagram
threshold values. It also has support for transparent
printer control strings which are passed directly to the
output without affecting the fill and justify
processing. This facility makes it possible to use
special features found on many letter quality printers,
as well as implementation of specialized pre-processor
programs which can provide mathematical typesetting,
Restrictions: To assemble under RT-11 V5.1 set KMON NOINT. PRO
support requires V5.1 or
