Subject: Chiwriter is now Megawriter

Hardin Aasand asks about Chiwriter.

Chiwriter is now Megawriter and is published by Paraclete Software
at 1000 E. 14th St., Suite 425, Plano, TX 75074 (phone: 214/578-8185).
According to version 3.01a of the manual, dated 1988, Megawriter is
compatible with Word Perfect in that one can convert from WordPerfect
files. I don't know what the Epson 1e model printer is, but the pro-
gram seems to support a lot of printers and it may support that one.
According to the manual, it's not difficult to write one's own printer

I've only played around with a friend's copy of the program, so my com-
ments are not particularly well-informed. But: entering text is not
easy, and not helped by a very ugly screen display, even with VGA. But
the printed output is very nice, at least on a laser printer. (I've
got a IIp.)
