Text processing on MZ 800

Post by fitus » Mon Jun 24, 2019 11:15 am

Hello friends,

as a child, in 1991, I was trying to create a text processor for MZ 800, which could work with text and graphic together. It was never finished, but a beta version was done and with RAM disk and floppy disk it looked not bad. Sadly, the source code (inTurbo Pascal and X-Basic compiler) has been lost through the years. The graphic part was coded in commands for plotter 1P16. Now I want to recreate it (hope will have a time). I would like know, what was the standard way of text processing on MZ 800 in western Europe.
In SUC magazine from november 2005 Vol 25/3, p. 16-17 there is a list of available text processors.
For cassette: GENESIS, PEACHTEXT, MZ-WORD, WD-PRO, for disk: PEACHTEXT, WDPRO, WORDSTAR, TEXTWRITER.
I am also interested in graphic designer program PIXEL. Where can I download these programs ?

Thanks for help
