Re: wordperfect 5.1 for unix, and debian?
I appreciate all You provided in this exchange. Please do not go to over
much trouble. as I use wp every single day on my main computer, and only
had a desire to find something I might personally do with my Debian box,
I will not lose anything if by chance my copy will only run in a Unix
I am not bothered paying for what I consider a worth while professional
investment, weather financially or in energy.
It may be a fun experiment, but not a critical requirement.

Ok, I was guessing 1995, it was later. I found my copy of Corel WordPerfect 8

If you have a version for Unix, it might never have run on Linux at all. If
you have some kind of Unix, you could always try it and see
what happens. There are various BCD versions around, which will supposedly
run on a PC. I installed PCBCD, but I couldn't get it to boot
on a multi-boot system, and I don't have a spare PC to try it on. In spite of
the fact that I "never" throw anything out, I can't find
the copy of Solaris I was going to offer you. It came from about 2000. If you
know what kind of Unix the WP was made for, and what year,
I bet you can find a Unix that will run it, on eBay, or Amazon. Most Unixes
were not free, however. Maybe the obsolescent ones are at
least reasonable! And, of course, most Unixes did not run on PCs, but some
did--the Solaris I had would. If by chance I find it, I'll
I need to check this edition then, because it is far more current than
1995 I am sure.
let you know.
