An editor program allows the user to create and modify simple text files. This is as opposed to a word processor program which usually allows formatting, fonts, italics, and other stylistic devices intended to look better when printed out - an editor is simply designed to edit text. Because of this, editors are often used to write computer programs, configuration files, web pages, and other technical files that are read by other computer programs, not only by people.
