I have a requirement to modify several "Windows Metafiles, *.WMF" which were created back in 1995. Are there any tools still around which will allow me to read, edit, re-write these files?

See http://www.csn.ul.ie/~caolan/publink/libwmf/libwmf/doc/ora-wmf.html - that's a pretty complete documentation on the WMF file format, this should be of some help.

BTW: MS Word can open .wmf files, I havent tried to alter them with it. Smart Pix (http://www.xequte.com/smartpix/index.html - shareware) should be able to do it.

It does not appear that Smart Pix will allow me to alter the metafiles.  However it is the best viewer I've come across yet. Thanks
