Savetz Posted February 14, 2018 Share Posted February 14, 2018 In 1987, Bob Ertl's master's thesis was titled Narrowing the Gap Between the Word Processing Needs of Teachers and the Capabilities of Word Processors for Atari 8-bit Computers. As part of that project, he created an Atari word processor aimed at the needs of math teachers. The word processor is called REWRITE and was only used by a handful of teachers. It was never widely available. Today, for the first time, and with massive effort from Bob, I am able to share REWRITE. Bob has released two versions of the word processor in ATR format, and the Mac/65 source code (!) for both versions (in multiple file formats), and the manual. I scanned his thesis. The permanent location of the files is at Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/REWRITE_word_processor For easy access, here's the ZIP file: The REWRITE Word Processor.zip I will be interviewing Bob for the ANTIC podcast in March. Here are some screenshots: —Kevin 20 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
