Hi Larry,
I have sitting in my office, a new in package copy of wordperfect for 
I got it here,  hoping that I could use it on my still basically 
unuseable Linux box.
I have never checked it very carefully. Let me dig it out this weekend 
though and confirm exactly what it is.  I suspect given the source was ac 
computer company that the package may be  an entire suit, but do not hold me 
to that line of thought.
Stay tuned,
