Summary
  • Silk is a Lotus-like software package that is similar to Lotus 1-2-3, but is more awkward to use. The package does run fairly quickly, has easy setup, has constant on-line help available to the user, and will import Lotus 1-2-3 worksheets. The program also has a Time-Series format that is useful to validate data and results and be used as an error-checking tool. The package supports only Epson printers and its command structure make usage of Lotus macros ineffective unless translated: Silk has no electronic translation utility. The package requires 440Kbytes of memory. The package has the same degree of compatibility to Lotus as PFS: Professional File, but PFS: Professional File is considered to be more full-featured.
