INSTALLATION:

Installation on Unix/Linux should be simple. Simply execute the following 
sequence of commands:

./configure ; make ; su -c 'make install'

Note that this assumes that you have development versions of glib (>= 2.0.0),
libgsf (>= 1.6.0), and libwpd (0.6.1) installed. I also assume that
you have pkgconfig installed.

This will make + install a single executable: wpd2odt. You may use it
on the command line as follows:

USAGE:

wpd2odt <infile> <outfile>

Where <infile> is a WordPerfect(tm) 6 (or greater document) and
<outfile> is the name of the target odt document, which wpd2odt will
create.

TROUBLESHOOTING:

You may need to add libwpd's pc to your pkgconfig path, if
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig is not present. Try setting this environment
variable on the commandline (using bash):

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/
