Does anyone know if RIGHTWRITER is still around.
Unlike some grammar check utilities, RW did its
^thing,^ made a list of ^suggestions,^ and allowed the user
to change as desired and at the author's pace -- nothing
^interactive^ here. RW also had a fairly good selection of
indices (indexes >).
Nothing's perfect ... USAF had some grammar rules an IBMer
challenged once. Pentagon-ese passed, albeit no one at the
STC conference comprehended what was written, while a
Hemmingway paragraph (of only 104 words) flunked the fog
test ... which the TWs understood with ease.
I lost track of RightWriter when I was forced out of DOS.

PLEASE, post replies to the address in the sig block
(below). TIA
