Project Universal Text

The Way Ahead

Universal Text is an implementation of the text theory presented in my book Text-Oriented Software. After some years experimenting with the Universal Text Interpeter, it is time to plan the way ahead: a family of programs beginning with a rewrite of the existing interpreter and ending with a complete operating system.

At these pages there is some material describing the whole project and its parts.
