Word star is a word processor application published by micro-pro international, originally written for the CPLIM operating system but later ported to DOS, which enjoyed a dominant market share during the early to mid-1980s. It was a text-based word processing program which made files relatively small. By contrast, most word processors today are code-based and save their document in much larger files.
