PenPoint, a new operating system designed and built from the ground up for the unique requirements of mobile, pen-based computers, is described. It is a 32-b, object-oriented, multitasking operating system that is compact and scalable across a wide range of highly portable, pen-based computers. Users control PenPoint computers with special pens that are sensed by the screen. The user writes directly on the screen, combining the convenience of a notebook with the power of a computer. PenPoint translates data entered by handwriting into ASCII. Commands are issued by pointing and by gestures such as circling and scratch out.<>
