EasyScript was a word processor for Commodore 64 and 128 home computers, published by Commodore Business Machines. It was written by a mainframe programmer who became fascinated by the platform. It had a full range of features, with one maddening quirk: as you entered text, it simply appeared on the screen in one continuous stream. There was no word wrap, and words would break wherever they were when you reached the end of a screen line. To see word wrapped text, you had to go into a preview mode.

Although the software was published by Commodore, it was developed by Precision Software and written by Simon Tranmer.
