CoEd meets VTML, pdf
Technical report R-98-5007, Department of Computer Science, Aalborg University, Denmark, June 1998.
Collaboratively creating documents is a complex task that requires sophisticated tools. CoEd is a system providing overview and versioning support for the creation of complex and hierarchically structured text documents. Its limitations in the efficient management of disk usage and in providing a few sophisticated collaboration functionalities led us to consider the VTML change tracking language for improving the feature set of CoEd. This report explores the advantages of using a sophisticated change-tracking language in a versioning system for collaborative writing.
