Annarita Guarnieri -- Have I got news for you....
Seek out vDOS, a new programme (October 2014) that will allow the installation and running of WordStar 4.0. I haven't used it yet myself, as I have only just downloaded it, but many people apparently have successfully. So it would seem to be the answer to a maiden's prayer, if like me you have thousands of WordStar files you were thinking you'd have to give up... Now it seems you don't have to -- what a relief!
For more info, try:
-- Good luck!

Documents written in this version seem to be producing a gibberish output when they are saved an reopened.

A journalist, I started off with WordStar 3.3, I think it was, using it on an Epson PX-8, with CP/M system, in 1984, and used it on that machine for the next five years, while also later using an Epson PC Portable (weighing 6.5Kgs!) with WordStar 3.45 for PC's. I only moved up to WordStar 4.0 in the early 2000's, and still use it for many "notes", mainly because it is more convenient, and because I already have an investment in THOUSANDS of WS files, so I can't give it/them up....
WordStar was a small, neat and efficient way of creating files that you mostly needed on your computer, rather than printed off, maybe. I can use STRIP.EXE to strip off the high bit, if I need to import the file as .txt, into a Windows programme like Word. But the biggest advantage was I can use DR.COM to order all the files in a directory, and very easily and quickly go down the screen, hit return, and see the file in plain text, even with the hi-bit, as Dr.Com allows for that.
I wish I could get hold of a copy of WS5, which apparently has no hi-bits, as that would be even more convenient -- but I have never found where to download it....
By the way, WordStar was on both the Epson PX-8 (much like a notebook, but they didn't call them that in those days) in 1985, when I took it to the summit of East Malaysia's 4,101m high Mt Kinabalu -- the first computer ever to reach that summit, the highest in Southeast Asia. I repeated the endeavour again in 1989, when I took the Epson PC Portable to the summit.
But never again -- it was tough!

George R. R. Martin reported in 2014 he still used WordStar 4.0 on a DOS machine to write his novels.

This v4.00 set is missing the Dictionary .OVLs and can't do spel checks or thesaurus look-ups. Still great for opening those dusty .docs though.

One of the earliest and greatest word processing programs around in the late 1970's and very early 1980's. I used it under the operating system CP/M 2.2.
