UK DEFENCE TECHNOLOGY FIRM LIBERATES WORDSTAR FOR UNIX

MicroPro International has given an embryonic UK firm permission to market and enhance Unix and DEC VAX versions of a WordStar command-compatible program developed by the UK Ministry of Defence’s Royal Signals Research Establishment at Malvern, Worcestershire. The new firm, unnamed and unincorporated, is expected to emerge from talks between Milton Keynes-based Defence Technology Enterprises Ltd and Real Time Consultants Ltd of Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. The WordStar program is written in Coral 66 and will be sold under the name of Scribel. Defence Technology formed in 1985 to help transfer Ministry-developed technology to the commercial world.
