DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF SIMPLE WORD PROCESSOR
Designing and implementation are learnt in this project.
Computer science course is relatively a new subject, its
importance cannot be our emphasized with respect to the designing and
implementation in word processing packages either in science,
engineering, military business, industry and government.
Rate of processing of a proposed form, certification and
designing of word processor even if they design the rate of
implementing is very low, since it involves writing it, which is done
manually. An introduction of the designer of the simple word processor
was carried out and also displayed to introduced the users the make of
the operation of the simple word processor.
After the message is displayed, it is made to wait on the
screen till one has enough time to record it after which the user
presses they key to continue if there is any need to press the key.

This can guide us as we explain the system, since computer
science is a new course. It’s importance can’t be over emphasized with
respect to designing and implementation in text editing package which
could be in science, engineering, business or government etc.
Consequently, computers are becoming indispensable. This is
obviously true in developed countries like Nigeria is gradually being
gravitated into computer oriented society with professional like
engineers, analysts, designer etc. this might being enormous emphasis on
design and implementation of some parts in the computer as well as the
We have to design this simple text editor and word
processing package and at least come out with an output design from a
computer system that could serve as a tepping stone towards building of
other text editing and simple word processing package and took more
promising in the near future.
1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
Processing data of all sorts is relatively low, since it
involve writing which is done manually. Misusing it computer keyboard,
and lack of cohesion on the part of users, frequently do occur. It is
well noted that there are sometimes.
Unnecessary delays and difficult routine papers works, which are, involved in simple word processing and text editing.
As these things are brought to light, there is then a need
to design our own self-satisfactory package that could be used to carry
out these functions by al users. These objectives could be reached by
integrating the existing system into the proposed system and package.
1.3 OBJECTIVE OF STUDY
Since, a simple word processor act as that part of a
computer system that receives and stores instruction and data, performs
arithmetic and logic operations and directs the actions of input and
output devices a statistical data assembled by a typical computer expert
is enormous and the processing the job is tasking and inefficient. The
implementation of computers that will enhance the efficiency of the
processing of the statistical data is highly desirable. The power and
flexibility of computers in handling and processing various types of
data and also for accurately calculation of complex equation are great
assets in the effective management at of computerizes. Through intensive
research we know that problem of delay in the computer will take of at
least to a reasonable extent to enhance efficiency, accuracy and speed
1.4 CATEGORIES OF COMPTUER SYSTEM:
The most distinguishing characteristics is its computing
capacity (sizes) computer had been classified as microcomputers,
minicomputer, mainframe computer and super computer etc. rapid advances
in computer technology have brought what used to be distinguishing
characteristics (size, cost memory-capacity etc).
1.4.1 MICRO COMPUTER
A microcomputer is a small computer. A keyboard, video
monitor, and memory were attached to the microprocessor. The computer
and its peripheral devices are called the computers system configuration
of a microcomputer can vary. It consist of a computer keyboard for out
Monitor for soft-copy (temporary) output printer for
hard-copy (printed) output one or two disk drives for permanent storage
of data, some of the popular, add on-board are:-
- Colour and graphics adapter
- Internal battery-power clock/calculator
- Hard disk
- UCR back up
1.4.2 MINI COMPUTER
Mini computer has been described in terms of physical size,
they are smallish computers that serves several users with several
monitors called terminals connected to it or interms of its physical
size, it can be it processing capability, the number of people that
could be served simultaneously, memory capacities, the type of
technology used in the processor environmental requirement. Each leap in
technological innovation and the passages of time have obscured
whatever clear cut destination could be made between mini and mainframe,
but the way they are used, make them more like mainframe than micros.
So even though some of the mare powerful micro service multiple users
can look very much like small minis, we describe the minicomputer simply
as the smallest.
1.4.3 THE WAY WE USE COMPUTER
Limitation system/data processing. The bulk of existing
computer is dedicated to information system and data computer is
dedicated to information system and computer processing.
The category includes all uses of computers that support
the administr4ation aspect of an organization e.g payrol system, airtime
reservation system, student registration system etc.
Personnel computing: individual and companies are
purchasing small inexpensive microcomputer, for a variety of business
and domestic applications. A microcomputer system easily sits on a
desktop and can be controlled by one person. The productivity tools for
- Word processing
- Desktop publishing
- Electronic spreadsheet
- Data base
- Presentation graphics.
