Word2x is a software for converting word documents to text without any Microsoft software to help you, including non-microsoft operating systems (and therefore no OLE dll's, etc). There may be one object that is distributed only pre-compiled on my Linux system due to restrictions on the "real" information about word documents. This file will be excluded from the GPL. It will not be vital to convert documents but will offer better performance, for obvious reasons.
The currently supported output formats are plain text, LaTeX and HTML. The program converts word to a central format and output modules write the desired target format.
