Catdoc & xls2csv
Jump to navigation Jump to search
catdoc is a program that reads one or more Microsoft Word files and outputs text to standard output. It does the same work for .doc files as the Unix cat command for plain ASCII files. It is now accompanied by xls2csv - a program that converts Excel spreadsheets into comma-separated value files - and catppt - a utility to extract textual information from Powerpoint files.
