Subject: appleworks tests
Thanks to all for looking into my issue so carefully.
Actually I don't have libre office, my enquiry was to make sure I can
one way or other convert my appleworks.
Got an old Mac OS x 10.5.8 and was going to get an airbook or so to go
overseas, but if i can't convert my files, it won't be a holiday
I'll have to change it one day though..I can't just download
libreoffice for testing as I don't have much more space on my old Mac...
Here are some tests if you like:

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 ( http://sourceforge.net/p/libmwaw/wiki/Home/ ),
see for instance http://docs.libreoffice.org/ .
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:
mwawOSX.zip, 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...
