...With a consistent, integrated user interface so you can create compound documents containing pictures, words, tables, graphs ...and more.
"Andrew" (short for The Andrew User Interface System or AUIS) is an integrated set of tools that allow you to create, use, and mail documents and applications containing typographically formatted text and embedded objects. It has three principal components:
The Andrew User Environment (AUE) is an integrated set of applications beginning with a 'generic object' editor (ez), a help system, a system monitoring tool (console), an editor-based shell interface (typescript), and support for printing multi-media documents.
The Andrew Toolkit (ATK) is a portable user-interface toolkit. It provides a dynamically-loadable, object-oriented environment wherein objects can be embedded in one-another. Thus, one could edit text that contains not only fonts and styles, but also embedded raster images, spreadsheets, drawing editors, equations, simple animations, etc. These embedded objects could themselves contain other objects, including text. ATK is an open system so programmers can create new objects that can be embedded as easily as those system-defined objects.
