Tschudi, Ronald R.; Meredith, Joseph C.
PROBE is a search and retrieval program designed for use with large tape files of bibliographic data such as the ERIC system's "Research in Education" and "Current Index to Journals in Education" data bases. The program, implemented on a CDC 6600 computer and being developed for the IBM 360, is characterized by a broad range of capabilities and options which are described in this report. The general capabilities of PROBE are briefly described, and further sections discuss PROBE search procedures and specification. Two separete levels of search parameter specification--SPEC and QUERY--are described in more detail. A brief section on the application of the PROBE program concludes the report. (SH)
