Convert Powerpoint files to txt,html.....


I am looking for a command line utility that can convert powerpoint files (Microsoft) to text or html or any other file format. The reason is, I am developing a web site for a customer whereby they can upload files and then the text in the files is converted to text and then inserted into the database. That way the user can search the files for text without having to download the files. I have found a command line program for all the other file types they wanted (.doc,.rtf,.xls,.pdf,.ps,html etc) but I cannot find anything for .ppt files.

Thanks for your help in advance.


I am going on vacation soon so if I don't respond to your reply....don't worry I will soon. Thanks.
