An Introduction to 3RIP--An Interactive Text Data Base System.
Royal Inst. of Tech., Stockholm (Sweden). Library.
This descriptive guide provides introductory information geared to aid both the user and the information manager in the use of 3RIP, an online text database system consisting of three components: (1) a retrieval system used to locate and display records, (2) a file handler used to read records from files and to write records onto files, and (3) a text editor used to create and modify records. Chapters describe the system in general, 3RIP's menu-based dialogue for novices and occasional users, and 3RIP's standard command vocabulary. A search sample is displayed, and the managerial aspects of 3RIP are examined. An appendix contains some descriptions of 3RIP's demonstration search files. (FM)
