Description

The Toshiba HX-S501 is a Japanese Word Processor cartridge released in 1984. Toshiba was the first company to release such software. Extra characters, words and short sentences can be saved.

Original title: 日本語ワードプロセッサ 漢字君
Official price: ¥14,800

The same version of this software is build in the following MSX1 computers:

From BASIC, the software can be launched with CALL JWP or _ JWP. However, you need to have the HX-M200 Kanji ROM Level 1 in another cartridge slot.

It is possible to use other internal or external Kanji Roms, but if you use the Sony HBI-K16 Kanji ROM Level 1, CALL JWP leads to a I/O device error. To bypass this problem, an addendum to the manual of the Sony cartridge gives the solution:

10 FOR I = &H9080 TO &H9120 : POKE i, &HC9 : NEXT I
20 CALL JWPKAKU
