Abstract (in English): 

Excerpt from chapter 2 of Literary Machines. Susalito, CA: Mindful Press, 1981.

Pull Quotes: 

As a first step we propose such an evolutionary structure, the 'docuplex', as the basic storage structure for electronic literature.

The true storage of text should be in a system that stores each change and fragment individually, assimilating each change as it arrives, but keeping the former changes; integrating them all by means of an indexing method that allows an previous instant to be reconstructed.
