text extractor for MS-Office files

The catdoc program reads one or more Microsoft Word files and outputs their contents to standard output as text.

It is accompanied by xls2csv, a program which converts Excel spreadsheets into comma-separated-values format, and catppt, a utility to extract textual information from PowerPoint files.

It doesn't try to preserve Word formatting; its goal is to extract plain text and allow you to read it (and, probably, reformat it with TeX).

This package suggests tk because it also includes wordview, an optional Tk-based GUI for catdoc. The MIME config provided in this package will use wordview if X is running, or catdoc directly if it is not.
