wvWare(1) convert msword documents


wvWare [-c charset] [--charset charset] [-p password] [--password password] [-x config.xml] [--config config.xml] [-d dir] [--dir dir] filename


wvWare converts word documents into other formats such as PS,PDF,HTML,LaTeX,DVI,ABW


-c charset, --charset charset
word 97 documents are stored in one of two formats, either in 8 bit windows codepages or in 16 bit unicode. The unicode can be converted easily into utf-8, and the codepages are promoted to unicode and converted from there, except for the western european codepage which is always converted to iso-5589-15 if possible. This is the default behaviour. While it is possible to convert into other formats or to force a conversion to a particular format, it is not recommended as you don't get a guarantee that the output will be correct. For instance, if you convert an English document into koi8-r encoding then it will be wrong, but if you are sure then you can override the default output format. The charsets that are available depend on your system: systems using the gnu libc 2 and above can convert to just about anything; systems that at, wv configure time, prove to be inadequate for charset conversion use wv's internal conversion formats which are a small subset of the possible conversions, namely: utf-8 iso-5589-15 koi8-r tis-620
-p password, --password password
Due to heroic work done by a great team of workers, the wv library can decrypt password protected word 97 and older versions of word documents given the correct password.
-d dir, --dir dir
If dir is used then any created graphics will be placed in this directory. The default is the directory in which the word document resides.
-b name, --basename name
Use name as the base name for image files.
-a format, --auto-eps format
Depending on whether images of type format can be automatically converted to encapsulated PostScript, print "yes" or "no" and exit. Encapsulated PostScript is required for LaTeX, PostScript, and PDF output. Currently possible values for format are "wmf", "png", and "jpg".
-s format, --suppress format
Suppress automatic conversion of images of type format to encapsulated PostScript. Currently possible values for format are "wmf", "emf", "png", "jpg", and "pict".
-1, --nographics
Suppress output of embedded images.
-x config.xml, --config config.xml
Use this to give the location of the config file. If not used, the config file is searched for by first checking the current directory, and then by looking in the install location (/usr/local/lib/wv/wvHtml.xml by default)
-X, --xml
Produce XHTML-like XML output (as defined in /usr/local/lib/wv/wvXml.xml).
-v, --version
Print wvWare's version number and exit.
-?, --help
Print a help message and exit.
