WordPerfect (WP) is a word processing application owned by Corel with a long history on multiple personal computer platforms, originally developed under contract at Brigham Young University for use on a Data General minicomputer in 1979. The authors retained the rights to the program, forming Satellite Software International (SSI) to sell it under the name WordPerfect in 1980. It moved to MS-DOS in 1982, and several greatly updated versions quickly followed. The application's feature list was considerably more advanced than its main competition WordStar, an established program that originated on CP/M. It also gained praise for its "look of spareness" and clean display. WordPerfect rapidly displaced most other systems, especially after the 4.2 release in 1986, and it became the standard in the DOS market by version 5.1 in 1989.
