from M$ word to hmtl converter (Developers)

Hi,

actually most of text are written from m$ software users.
No one of this thinks they are others O.s. and save the files in ms standard format.This is true expecially for doc files.

http://word2x.sourceforge.net/index.html

I've found this converter from ms to html (good for browser or word processor like FLWRITER) or Latex.

Unfortunly don't exist DOS binaries.
i've tried to compile with DJGCC, but cause my inexperience the compilation stopped.

Someone want to try to compile for obtain a binaries?

Thanks

WVware convert .Doc to HTML and other formats

I compiled wvWare for DOS now using djgpp. It can be downloaded here:
wvWare at Sourceforge

The program converts from Microsoft DOC to html, LaTeX, WML, plain text and DocBook format.

I hope someone besides Roberto will use it.;-)

WVware convert .Doc to HTML with HX extender

Hi Guys,

this for inform that WVWARE for win convert .doc or rtf files in html
wvware con convert .doc to .htm with use of hx extender on DOS

Go to GNUWIN32 page on sourceforge. Select wv page.
Download the full package.
Load doslfn
expand in c:\
goes in \gnuwin\bin and pestubbing wvware.exe
goes in \gnuwin\share\wv and copy all. XML files to \gnuwin\bin

now copy file.doc to convert in \gnuwin\bin
invoke wvware.exe -x c:\gnuwin\bin\wvhtml.xml file.doc > file.dat
(this is a trick suggest from Georg Potthast)
ren file.dat file.htm
open with flwriter or your preferred dos browser

you can also create a batch file (.bat) :

gnuwin.exe -x c:\gnuwin\bin\wvhtml.xml %1.doc > %1.dat
ren %1.dat %1.htm

You can also pestubbed others converter and utilities associated.

Good tests

I looked at catdoc and the descriptions mentioned "Additional output formats, such as HTML can be easily defined."

However, this probably means that the text that catdoc is designed to output is wrapped into a html document.

I guess wvware works well but it is difficult to port to DOS.

together the 2 programs convert word text in .TXT (not formatting, no importing bold, italic,etc) or .PS (not modificable from word processor).

The goal it's convert in .html.

They are Wvware able to this purpose, but also without DOS binaries..

Weren't there already several such tools pre-compiled in years past? I haven't used them much, but you could also give them a try (e.g. Catdoc, Antiword):

from M$ word to hmtl converter

Hi Roberto,

I tried to compile it too but the code is so old it will not compile with a current gcc /djgpp. As far as I could make out the program was done on a SUN machine.

So it will require quite some changes to get it to work. And then it will only support very old Microsoft DOC versions so I am not sure if it will be of much use today. Microsoft uses a XML based format now and that is easier to convert to other formats.
