My question was Can libre office read pages/appleworks/clarissworks? Thanks. Turquoisegrece

    In fact, in some near future, 
a filter for Appleworks/Clarisworks text (word processing) files might be included in LibreOffice
based on libmwaw ( ), see for instance .
It will not be perfect but it may retrieve the text, most graphics, tables, text-boxes, basic 
layout, ... .

    For Pages and for other kinds of Appleworks/Clarisworks documents (spreadsheet, database, 
...), I do not know.

if you have a Mac with OSX >= 10.6, you can find in 
a compiled version
of libmwaw and mwaw2odt with a <<crude>> AppleScript interface:, it takes a supported 
format file
( and so Appleworks/ClarisWorks files ) and converts it in a .odt files ... Let me know if you try 
it and find some bugs...
