Word processor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (857 words)
A word processor (also more formally known as a document preparation system) is a computer application used for the production (including composition, editing, formatting, and possibly printing) of any sort of viewable or printed material.
The word processor has become a central component of the office suite and is increasingly only available in this form, rather than as a standalone program.
The term word processing was devised by IBM in the 1960s, and originally encompassed all business equipment—including manually operated typewriters—that was concerned with the handling of text, as opposed to data.
