A word processor is a computer program or device that provides for input, editing, formatting and output of text, often plus other features.

Early word processors were stand-alone devices dedicated to the function, but current word processors are word processor programs running on general purpose computers.

The functions of a word processor program fall somewhere between those of a simple text editor and a fully functioned desktop publishing program. However the distinctions between these three have changed over time, and are somewhat unclear.[1][2]

History

The first word processing device was patented by Henry Mill for a machine that was capable of "writing so clearly and accurately you could not distinguish it from a printing press".[3]
