View WordPerfect for Windows files in Terminal
Authored by: donquichote on Aug 28, '06 12:40:41PM

I guess this hint could be useful for me. But I need some help. What do I have to do with wpd2text? Which download-link? How to install it? Thanks!

There's a binary release of wpd2* available for Mac OS X; the 0.8.6 version hasn't been posted, and the older 0.8.5 release is not listed anymore but still available: <http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/libwpd/libwpd-0.8.5.dmg?download>;

It's an Apple Installer package that will install the wpd2text binary at /opt/wpcnv/bin/wpd2txt

I'll poke the website maintainer again about posting the 0.8.6 package....
