CPC Word was a word processor for the Amstrad CPC written from 1990 to 1992 by Jörn Mika (Prodatron). It was very complex and included a complete data base application and a spell checker. Many parts have been realised in Basic, and therefore it was sometimes not very fast. Another problems was, that the length of one line was limited to 80 chars, and the text formatting functions didn't handle control codes.
