    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives a set of functions for computer graphics programming, the Graphical Kernel System (GKS). Defines functions for two dimensional graphical output, storage and dynamic modification of pictures and operator input. The functions and datatypes are specified independently of programming languages.
