I read somewhere that Abiword uses wvware. Maybe it is built in?
Sounds like a good reason to install Abiword for when Antiword can't
handle a really odd WORD file. I have experimented and they both have
problems with different types of WORD files. I tried with one really
tough one, in three parts, and they got most of it but Catdoc, Wordview
and Newdeal left out large chunks and messed up the rest.
Is there a standalone version of wvware compiled for SW71? I could not
find any, nor could I figure out how to compile or even just what files I
needed to compile with.
