Abstract

A UNIX-based system for typesetting technical papers for high-quality output was evaluated by measuring use of computer and economic resources. Five manuscripts of a technical journal submitted to Physical Review Letters were typeset at Bell Laboratories, after preparation of programs to handle the equations, tables, and layout problems. Computerized typesetting is shown to be substantially cheaper than typewriter composition.
