File Extension WP5 Description:

The WP5 file extension defines document files created in the application Word Perfect 5, which was popular during the 80s. Files in the .pw5 file extension can be generated through either Windows or DOS. WordPerfect 5 is a successful version of WordPerfect and features support for tables in the document. WordPerfect was the popular choice then, because it was accessible for a broad range of computers and operating systems. It can also run on Apple II, Linux and Mac operating systems. WordPerfect was originally created by Bruce Bastian and Alan Ashton, who founded the WordPerfect Corporation and was later acquired by Corel.

Files with the .wp5 file extension can be created using menus that can be pulled down, and features that have spread-sheet like functions. WordPerfect 5, which uses the WP5 file extension, is a text based version that utilized the inversion of text color that was able to specify different mark-ups.

Files in the .wp5 file extension are documents created by the word processor, using sophisticated short-hand techniques that also included table-making. Documents saved with the .wp5 file extension are printable materials, edited or formatted, with the stream based program. This means that alterations take effect for the whole document, and you don't have to choose the area you need modified unlike with Word, where you have to select the area first before selecting the format. WordPerfect 5 allows the changes to take effect from the point it was chosen to start, and the style flows throughout the document.

WordPerfect 5 is a system for preparation of documents, and is also involved in the production, editing, composition, and formatting of the printable material. This tool for text formatting was created for office productivity, and offers functions for text manipulation, including automatic production of batch mailings, keyword indices, table of contents and figures, footnote numbering, and cross referencing.
