00100 THOUGHTS BEFORE ANSWERING RICH:
00200 It seems that PUB2 can do the final justification even
00300 for forward-references; I don't understand the problem.
00400 Pass 1 could provide with each label value its raster width;
00500 this combined with the knowledge of SHORTM in raster
00600 units is enough to compute the amount of space needed. No?
00800 This is Rich Johnsson. A standard version sounds like a good
00900 idea, but I have very little time to work on it. I'm trying to get
01000 the final changes in to let PUB handle all the XGP justification
01100 and related things. Big problem at the moment is with forward references.
01200 When I get that done I don't think I'll be able to do much more.
01300 I'll be coming to XEROX about 15-May. By the way, I'll need
01400 some place to stay 15-May to 15-Aug. Any suggestions you have will
01500 be appreciated.

01900 REWRITES WORK COMPLETELY!! (AT LEAST THOSE TESTED IN RTEST.L70)
02000 WHY DON'T WE GET TOGETHER AND LOOK AT WHAT HAS TO BE DONE TO THE REWRITE
02100 VERSION OF THE LISP COMPILER. (I UPDATED ITS FORMAT SOMEWHAT -- IT'S ON
02200 LISP.L70.) ALSO IT SHOULDN'T BE TOO HARD, AND IT WOULD CERTAINLY BE NICE,
02300 IF WE COULD AT LEAST READ FROM THE TELETYPE. ARE YOU STILL GOING TO
02400 IMPLEMENT THE FULL READ?
