- WINDOW was Marinchip's
screen editor, itself written in QBASIC. I wrote WINDOW originally
to squelch the outcry from Marinchip customers for a ``screen
editor''-something I believed at the time beneath real programmers.
I named it WINDOW after the code name for radar chaff, a lightweight
countermeasure that's all image and no substance. WINDOW was
briefly marketed as AutoScreen for CP/M, and later its design served
as the basis for the screen editing features of Kern Sibbald's editor.
