Borland Sprint 1.0x

Sprint is a text-based word processor for DOS that features a powerful scripting language, multiple user interfaces, exceptional speed, the ability to handle very large files, and powerful PostScript capabilities.

It was originally created in 1982 as The FinalWord by the company "Mark of the Unicorn", and bought by Borland where it was renamed to "Sprint" in 1987.

It competed against other text-mode word processors such as WordStar, WordPerfect, Microsoft Word for DOS, and Multimate.

Sprint was criticized for not having a WYSIWYG GUI editor or print preview at a time when that was clearly the way forward. However Sprint was targeted towards power users that needed advanced features WYSIWYG editors did not yet provide.
