Abstract: The ASSIST implements a uniform graphical interface to software and documentation. It supports the creation, organization, and management of arbitrary ``information node types'' such as documentation, help, tutorials, questions and answers, etc. It also can manage and control analysis systems and programs such as IRAF and SAOtng. The newest release of ASSIST supports a World Wide Web node to provide asynchronous retrieval and display of Web documents. It also uses the X Public Access mechanism to communicate with other processes.
