Quick guide to WordStar??


Help, I'm learning SQLplus as part of my course, and when I telnet into the UNIX servers at uni it uses WordStar as the default command editor. Trouble is I don't know how to use it! My workshop booklet is tailored to windows, and I can't get hold of my tutor. Can anybody just tell me the basics - like how to save and quit, for a start!?! Ta...

Heck this site is different while using Lynx!!!!!

I have used WordStar on an OLD NEC laptop (1985) and on an
IBM XT, hopefully I'll remember some commands.

The first command you would want is quit: CTRL+K, Q
CTRL+K brings up a menu,I think something like the file menu.
If the help level is low, then it should also bring up a
list of commands you can use.

I think CTRL+K, S is save.

CTRL+J may be help, I can't be sure. I think this one
changes with different versions of WordStar.

Hope that get's you somehere!

Pleased to be of service. I have a list containing the entire WordStar commands, if I find the book I'll post some more.
