Information about “EXIDY WORD PROCESSOR”

Exidy is a full featured text editor with the flexibility of up to
four active screen windows and the sophistication to directly access
the buffers prior to saving the text in a disk file.  Exidy commands
are invoked by either the function keys or with the use of the ALT key
plus a keyboard key easily associated with the desired function, such
as ALT-I to Insert a line.  While Exidy has the lean feel of a text
editor, it includes a few key word processing features allowing for
credible but simple word processing.


~  Split screen into as many as 4 windows
~  Reformatting of specified lines
~  On screen help
~  Cursor move by line numbers
~  Bold/Underline/Extended ASCII character set

How to Start:  For directions, consult the HELP.EDX text file.  To
run it, at the DOS prompt type "EXIDY"<ENTER>.
