ProText, Protext-64 or PROTEXT-80 is a professional word processing program that can process 80 characters per line, and as such only runs on computer systems in 80-character mode. It was developed by the British software company Arnor in the early 1980s and released in various versions until about 2005.
Note: There are similar C64 programs and word processors with the same names! But they have little in common with this word processor except for the name!
Versions[edit | edit source]
ProText was first released for the Commodore CBM series and then for the C128, and also for the Amstrad CPC. The C64 version can only also be used on a C64 in 80-character mode, which must be operated with an appropriate 80-character plug-in card.
Later versions are also available for the Atari ST, Commodore Amiga, Acorn Archimedes and PC under MS-DOS.
- The Plus version of the EX 80 plug-in card from Jann Datentechnik already included the PROTEXT-80 word processor and cost about 248 DM (1985).
- The plug-in card 80-ZK-plus (198 DM) from Decam also included the word processor ProText and cost 298 DM (1985)
ProText as a normal program (single version) cost about 89 to 198 DM.
