OMNITAB(ID:559/omn007)
Statistical analysis and desk calculator
alternate simple view
Country: United States
Designed 1963
Published: 1963
Genus: Columnar sheets
Sammet category: Specialised Languages The original electronic worksheet
"OMNITAB [...] is designed to provide a close parallel to the modus operandi in carrying out calculations with a desk calculator and a multi-columned (and multi-lined) worksheet. "
"OMNITAB simulates desk computing in that it replaces the desk calculator, the mathematical tables and the multicolumn worksheet. The user is to regard the machine as a 46-column by 101-row tablet on which carry out its work."Related languages
