3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

JOSHUA is a scientific, modular data-based system for batch and terminal operation. Large volumes of data can be stored and retrieved for computation and display.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The JOSHUA OPERATING SYSTEM facilitates the ex- ecution of problems by the preservation of conveniently reusable da- ta and programs that are stored on-line. The data may be used in batch operation by computational programs and created and displayed  on IBM 3270 terminals.
