Miscellaneous: Reading MSWord document(last edit: 2000-11-22)
There are allot of programs around who let you read MSWord documents. The two programs
I use are 'antiword' and 'mswordview'. The last one is currently known as 'wvware' but
at the time I write this still known as 'msworview' in the ports.
Install 'antiword' via:
Antiword is an application that displays the text of MS Word files. Only files made by
MS Word version 6 or later are supported.
Run antiword from the command line:
user@host:~#antiword mydoc.doc | less
You can browse thru the docment if you redirect the output to e.g. less
Intall 'mswordview' via:
Run mswordview for the command line:
And then mswordview will create a file named 'mydoc.doc.html'. Open this file with your
browser and you can read the word document.
