Unfortunately that latest WordPerfect version is from 1998 and it's getting to be quite a hassle to deal with. We've not had any luck finding an alternative though.
Requirements: Must be entirely Linux compatible (CentOS). Must be entirely command line based (we could have a graphical environment set up if necessary, but everything would still have to be handled over ssh or rsh). Must be able to pass a word processing document and a CSV (or similar) file to a program and have the program output the document with the data in the CSV file filled in and then print it via lp/CUPS. End users would also have to be able to easily edit the template documents.
Open/Libreoffice doesn't seem to be able to do this headless/automated, but I may be wrong. We do use LibreOffice almost exclusively, so finding a solution that uses LibreOffice in an automated fashion would be fantastic."
