opening wordperfect on a mac

Is there a program I can use to open a wordperfect document on a mac and work on it so that I can send it?  Does Office 2011 do that?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

LibreOffice, which is free software can open WordPerfect files.
You can download it here.

I use Calc (spreadsheet) at work.

Does it allow you to edit?
Mark BullockQA EngineerCommented:
Yes. I don't have it installed on my Mac so I don't know what formats you can save in. I'm sure it's listed on the libreoffice site.
If you don't want a full office suite, I would suggest Abiword instead.  It should read WordPerfect files, just as LibreOffice does.

You won't be able write directly to a Word Perfect file, but neither can LibreOffice.

If you want to write to a Wordperfect file format, you'll have to install WordPerfect Office X7 onto a Windows OS.  If you have Microsoft office for Windows, it should let you export to a Wordperfect document format.  Unfortunately, Office for Mac have a very limited list of supported file formats.
