C coded antiword for DOCX ???


Hello,

Would you know any antiword for linux for docx?

this just compiled antiword does only DOC , not DOCX.
Code:
/tmp/antiword-0.37$ ./antiword 
        Name: antiword
        Purpose: Display MS-Word files
        Author: (C) 1998-2005 Adri van Os
        Version: 0.37  (21 Oct 2005)
        Status: GNU General Public License
        Usage: antiword [switches] wordfile1 [wordfile2 ...]
        Switches: [-f|-t|-a papersize|-p papersize|-x dtd][-m mapping][-w #][-i #][-Ls]
                -f formatted text output
                -t text output (default)
                -a <paper size name>

LibreOffice can open *.docx files, if that's what you're asking. So can Okular and Calligra Active. (Note that the *.docx file I had available for testing was a simple document; I didn't have any with complex formatting to test with.)

Those programs just happen to be on this computer what I'm using right now, but I suspect a number of other native Linux programs can also.

libreoffice is the most awful heavy solution.

Try apache open office or WPS (formerly kingsoft) instead of libre office.

Not only are they the mmost used, they also permit you to change the contents and save it back to disk.

By the way, I just read that antiword converts and opens only in text or postscript - thus losing all the formatting of the docx file.

OK
