Subject: Want Interpress decomposer

Lisp Version: 

Description: Ron Kaplan started on a program that would read Interpress '
files and display them. If we had a program that would read Intepress '
files, and from that, generate a Lisp program which actually created '
that file, we could proceed toward some pretty interesting and general '
utilities; e.g., we could take the diagrams tht were generated by Star '
and move them back into a paramaterizable and editable format. I suggest'
this as an AR rather than an idea for, say, Ken Feueurman, because I '
think that there are probably some capabilities that are needed in the '
intepress generation code that aren''t there. In fact, it would be best '
if the interpress reader generated DIG code, e.g., so that you could '
then run the program on the display. (It is almost necessary to do that '
if you are going to display an interpress document in a window smaller '
than the document.)'
