TeleWriter128 was the word processor I used a little for DECB programs.

There is a 64 version also available, I never used it.

It has one disadvantage, Line Wrap is turned on each time you start it.

I don't remember anything special to load it, just name it "xxx.BAS". I'm real rusty on my DECB, but you can save a BASIC program as an ASCII file. You'll have to look up the info on the save command. I think it was "SAVE FILENAME.BAS, A" for DECB....
