  • Publication number: 20050079477
    Abstract: A technique for creating interactions is provided. An interaction is defined in a data table. The data table may be stored in a word processing document. A type of interaction may be specified in the data table. The contents of the table are assessed to determine if any indicators are present, which would identify the type of interaction specified. The table contents may be stored into a string or an array. An interaction is created, based on the stored table contents. This allows developers of computer information, such as e-Learning, technical documents, or web pages to create interactions quickly and easily for their users.

  • Patent number: 4922417
    Abstract: A data hashing arrangement particularly suitable for efficient database storage and fast retrieval of large numbers of character strings. A database address is determined for a character string by replacing individual characters with random numbers selected from a predefined table of random numbers. The table locations of the selected random numbers are uniquely defined by the characters. The selected numbers are combined by iteractive bit reordering and exclusive-OR operations to form a result, which is then used to derive the database address where the character string is stored.

  • Patent number: 4723273
    Abstract: A call forwarding method that allows the called party to selectively forward individual alerting calls based, for example, on the calling party identity or on how busy the called party is at any given time, but without requiring the called party to first answer the calls. The called party can effect the transfer even though engaged in conversation with someone else.
