|Description:||Display or convert MS-Word files (0.37-1)|
Antiword is a free MS Word reader which is able to convert Word 2, 6, 7, 97, 2000 and 2002 to plain text, PostScript and PDF. Antiword is a work in progress and many features are still being developed. However, Antiword is usable on all but the most complex Word documents. Currently Antiword is able to convert Word documents to plain text, to PostScript, to PDF and to XML/DocBook. Please remember: the conversion to XML/DocBook is still experimental, the support for the Cyrillic alphabet is still experimental. There are some Mac OS X GUI's for Antiword, notably a service menu (still at 0.35). Visit the homepage to see the links.
Usage Example: Text output: antiword wordfile.doc > wordfile.txt PDF output: antiword -m MacRoman -a a4 wordfile.doc > wordfile.pdf PS output: antiword -m MacRoman -p a4 wordfile.doc > wordfile.ps UTF-8 is not fully supported, try adding -m roman or -m MacRoman or some other filename from /sw/share/antiword/ (without .txt suffix).
