Antiword RPM for Opensuse

Render MSWord documents as text for editing

This classical MSWord format reader still does some things better than newer alternatives.

1 Situation

  • Antiword does a good job at producing multibyte utf-8 text that is suitable as a source if you want to work in text-based formats like wiki languages or LaTeX
  • For some other purposes, such as reproducing the page layout in plain text, the wv toolkit may produce better results
    • wvHtml sometimes breakes multibye characters, e.g. the second character in “増加”
  • Judging from the antiword home page, development seems to have stalled at version 0.37
