A word processor program is a computer program that provides word processing functions. Originally a separate type of application to desktop publishing, the two program types now overlap, with many word processors now including what were once desktop publishing functions.
Notable programs include:
- Electric Pencil (1976)
- WordStar (1979)
- WordPerfect (1980)
- Microsoft Word (1983)
- WordPad (1995)
- LibreOffice Writer (2011)
A word processing function is an essential part of any office suite, and may be provided as a stand-alone program (for example Word in Microsoft Office) or as a function of a more general program (for example LibreOffice Writer in Libre Office). With the emergeance of the internet, different cloud-based word processor programs began to emerge, which allow people to work faster and more efficiently.
