  • Patent number: 4319588
    Abstract: A reusable device for rolling a cigarette from a generally rectangular cigarette paper and for holding the rolled cigarette during consumption thereof includes a rigid elongated member disposed along a longitudinal edge of the paper, and a crimping member for engaging a transverse edge of the paper. The elongated member provides a rolling guide for the cigarette, longitudinally strengthens the cigarette after rolling, and also provides a holder for the cigarette as the elongated member is exposed as the cigarette is consumed by smoking. The crimping member is adjacent the elongated member and prevents movement thereof during the rolling and the smoking of the cigarette. The elongated and crimping members may be integrally formed of a thin, rigid, and elongated wire of low heat conductivity having a hook at one end.

  • Patent number: 3949380
    Abstract: A plurality of peripheral devices having physical addresses are accessed by a host processor by use of logical addresses which are utilized by the various programs in a multiprocessing environment. Input/output tables are arranged to include pointers for relating the logical address provided by a programmer to the physical address of the device thereby providing necessary device specific information to the peripheral controller coupled with the peripheral devices. The input/output tables are structured so that pointers relating the physical and logical addresses may be changed to reassign the logically addressed device to another device and accordingly to point to another physical address.
