In this tutorial, we will write a simple Factor program which prompts the user to enter a word, and tests if it is a palindrome (that is, the word is spelled the same backwards and forwards).

In this tutorial, you will learn about basic Factor development tools.

Note: when you come across boxes with Factor code examples, you can click on them to copy and paste the code into your listener, to be run by then hitting ENTER.
