The use of computers in instrumental techniques is to report the results in any specified format, the ability to use or construct databases (data banks) from any of the information generated, stored or accessible outside the laboratory and the ability to log the progress and status of each sample that passes through the laboratory. The saving in time and effort for laboratory personnel and the relative freedom of data and results from human errors are further major benefits. The present text explains all these in a lucid style by using line diagrams. This text is useful for B.Sc. and M.Sc. students of various disciplines who are studying instrumental techniques.
