    Reading WordPerfect

    Hello everyone,

    I have a situation here. I am needing to do 2 things. I am needing to be able to read a wordperfect file and strip it of all of the control characters that it contains. I basically would like to be able to read a Wordperfect file as a plain text file. Is there any way I could do that???????? Any ideas???????

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Am I going to have to manually read the file and use the wordperfect format documentation in order to convert the file??? Is there not already a conversion app or an SDK I can use in a C# program to view the file???
