dc.description.abstractThis paper describes Ezprint, a program which reads in a COBOL file description of a sequential tape or disk file and generates a COBOL program to print that file. Ezprint has two interesting features: the use of intelligent heuristics to decide on a layout for the information to be printed, and the fact that a print program is generated automatically from the file description and a few control cards. The user may select all the elements of the file for printing or any subset. He may accept the layout algorithm's mapping of the information with or without modification or he can specify his own layout design.
