A 28meg program, is wordperfect that big?
Could it be a self extracting shell script or something?

type 'file /usr/WORDPERF' see if its an ELF. If it isn't
you could try 'sh /usr/WORDPERF' or 'perl /usr/WORDPERF'
('head /usr/WORDPREF to see if its a sh or perl script)

I can't remember what the exact message you get when a library is missing,
but you can check if thats the problem by 'ldd /usr/WORDPERF'.
