Package catdoc @ 0.95

Synopsis

MS-Word to TeX or plain text converter

Description

catdoc extracts text from MS-Word files, trying to preserve as many special printable characters as possible. It supports everything up to Word-97. Also supported are MS Write documents and RTF files.

catdoc does not preserve complex word formatting, but it can translate some non-ASCII characters into TeX escape codes. It's goal is to extract plain text and allow you to read it and, probably, reformat with TeX, according to TeXnical rules.

This package also provides xls2csv, which extracts data from Excel spreadsheets and outputs it in comma-separated-value format, and catppt, which extracts data from PowerPoint presentations.
