Something I just noticed while upgrading my office computer to FC5 is
that there is now a libwpd, used by Abiword and OO.org to import
Wordperfect files. It's written in C++.
Here's a link: http://libwpd.sourceforge.net/
Using recent versions of Abiword, I have to say it works quite well,
even for things like tables, which were previously always problematic.
In fact, what I've been doing with Scribus is to load a file into
Abiword, then copy-paste into Story Editor.
If I get the website right, there is also a wpd2html and wpd2text as
command line options also.
I don't know how much trouble it would be to incorporate this into Scribus.
