PaperClip was a word processor for the Commodore 64 and Atari 8 bit personal computers.

The Commodore 64 version of PaperClip was written by Steve Douglas and was rewritten for the Atari personal computer by Steve Ahlstrom and Dan Moore.

Both versions were published by Michael Reichmann's Batteries Included of Toronto, Ontario, Canada and by Ariolasoft in the United Kingdom.

Paperclip was supplied with a dongle, a hardware key used for copy protection that plugged into the DB-9 joystick port. A keyless version was also available.

Oops! Meant 1986, not 1976 for PaperClip and C64!

I wrote my Masters thesis in Communications with it on a C64 in 1976. Awesome software for its time. And a 64K PC? Just unbelievable.

I wrote a Master's thesis in Psychology entirely on the Commodore 74 using PaperClip!
