      For writing, George R.R. Martin is using an ancient system known as Wordstar , an old DOS machine that, for all intensive purposes is good for just one thing: writing..

But WSedit can be simultaneously used Windows-like (e.g. marking a block by using the mouse) and Wordstar-like (marking the block begin with ^KB and the end with ^KK).

      I started using Wordstar in I am a journalist and used it because it was the only word processing program I could use to file my stories directly, modem to modem, with my newspaper's modem.

I wrote my first book - all pages - using Wordstar on the filing-cabinet-sized Xerox with that massive stolen-from-the-Selectric keyboard and - to the dismay of my peers - a monitor. WordStar WordStar, originally from MicroPro, was a popular word processor during the early 80s.

It was ported to a number of CP/M architectures as well as Unix and PC/MS-DOS. It competed directly against many word processors, including WordPerfect, Microsoft Word for DOS, and Multimate. By the late 80s most business word processing had. The DOS versions of WordStar I used were just not to my liking, and WordPerfect could do layouts that was far better than any other word processor - closing on DTP.

I have been using word processing since Wordstar with CP/M, on a Kaypro. I have many years of Wordstar files that I need to access occasionally.

In Ms Word there is a conversion that will allow Word to open Wordstar files. Is there any such animal with OpenOffice. Using WordStar in "Nondocument Mode" was essentially the same as using a traditional text editor.

Contents at a Glance. Chapter 1 Using Templates in Microsoft Word Chapter 2 How to Design Templates. Chapter 3 How to Work with Headings. Chapter 4 How to Work with Figures. Chapter 5 How to Work with Tables.I remember using Wordstar in the 80s. It was a fine word processing program.

No mouse either. It's pure, crude word processing.
