Abstract

Computer evolution over recent years has led to a very significant reduction in their size and cost. Manufacturers are even offering to the general public models whose capabilities are on a par with computers considered powerful a decade ago. With new languages making communication with the machine clear and simple, programming can be mastered relatively quickly. It is possible to record on magnetic tape(a cassette or, better still, a minidisk) a system with thousands of entries. The considerable space and the speed with which data can be retrieved provide ample justification for the use of this technology. Management programs as well can be preserved in this way and utilized by staff having little knowledge of computer science with a negligible risk of error.
