I did lots of such searching--without effective success!

{The lwp file extension is associated with IBM Works, an office suite 
for the IBM OS/2 operating system. It included word processing, 
spreadsheet, database and PIM applications.

The last version was shipped with OS/2 Warp Version 4.

The lwp files contain documents created in the application.

This lwp file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported 
file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely 
obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating 
systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous 
versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were 
replaced in higher versions of their original programs.}
