Subject Re: Open Office Writer UTTER , UTTER Rubbish (or not)
Date Sun, 13 Mar 2016 18:04:19 GMT

OpenOffice has a long, long history. Not as long as you or me or many others here have been

contributors to AOO.

If you have the relevant C++ experience, the source code and build instructions are available.

Patches welcome!
