Q A software


DESCRIPTION

Q & A was a dual purpose software system published by Symantec, and written by a team headed by Symantec founder Dr. Gary Hendrix, Denis Coleman, and Gordon Eubanks in the 1980s and into the 1990s for MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows. The system provided both a word processor and a database. Released by Symantec in 1985 for IBM-compatible systems, Q&A's flat-file database and integrated word processing application is cited as a significant step towards making computers less intimidating and more user friendly. Among its features was a natural language search function based on a 600 word internal vocabulary.
