The CIMARON System: Modular Programs for the Organization and Search of Large Files. Final Report.
Aiyer, Arjun K.
The File Organization Project has made available a set of programs which are designed to operate on large files of machine readable bibliographic records. These programs are designed as an instrument for understanding and refining the techniques of bibliographic search. This document discusses four aspects of the system: (1) The retrieval program, CIMARON, is an on-line, interactive system with two complementary modes of operation--searching and browsing; (2) CIMARON2 terminal operator's guide is a step by step use of the system through an on-line computer terminal; (3) The BROWSER2 terminal operator's guide describes a program which is an independent routine used to scan currently stored index files, to save index terms temporarily, and to obtain hard copy of the displayed terms; and (4) A user's guide to file building. [Related documents are LI 003610, LI 003611, and LI 003645 through LI 003647.] (Author/SJ)
