Converting Microsoft .docx to plain text

While developing the application many times you would need to transform a file to a specific format of your use and therefore, the best way to do that in Linux is using the command line utilities provided.

doc2txt

To convert Microsoft Word documents to plain text in Linux "docx2txt" is the tool that does the work for you. I  had to do the manipulation in the word file and show it to the application so I used this utility.

you can find this utility on this link: http://docx2txt.sourceforge.net/

just open you shell and you can type the following command to see it happen.

$ docx2txt <source_file> <destination_file>

Now you can have a look at your destination file and see through under the contents of the file, but it just converts the to text files only.

For converting to even more file types another tool will help you definitely.

Pandoc

Pandoc offers converting to more formats than doc2txt. Pandoc is considered the best by many developers. You can read more about Pandoc at this link: http://pandoc.org/.

Pandoc offers converting documents to a wide range and one should give it a try.

But the drawbacks of the above conversion tools is that it does not convert the equations embedded in the documents to any proper format. If someone is converting documents then the person wants to the equations to get converted to MathMl or Latex.

writer2latex

writer2latex is the plugin at the libre office writer. This helps with generating a proper latex output of the document we want. Well, this plugin also has one problem it works with jre 6. So if you have jre 7 you need to degrade it to jre 6 this is the only prominent option currently left.
