  word processing
  
      A program used to create and print (chiefly
     textual) documents that might otherwise be prepared on a
     typewriter.  The key advantage of word processor is its
     ability to make changes easily, such as correcting spelling,
     changing margins, or adding, deleting, and relocating entire
     blocks of text.  Once created, the document can be printed
     quickly and accurately and saved for later modifications.
  
     Today most popular word processors, such as Microsoft Word,
     offer a much greater range of facilities than the first such
     programs.
  
     Compare text editor.
