Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Instead of writing a shell script you can use find and xargs commands to collect filenames and invoke convert with one filename at a time, like this:

Recently I try to develop modules for already existing, big project using Python and OpenOffice.org. The application is meant to work both under Linux and Windows. Unfortunately, it is not easy.
Python-UNO bridge to OpenOffice, which is part of OO suite, is different. Under Linux it works flawlessly with the fairly new Python v. 2.5. Under Windows it works only with supplied Python v. 2.3.4. It wouldn't be so bad if recent wxWidgets
