Antiword is a free MS-Word reader for Linux, RISC OS, and DOS. Antiword converts the documents from Word 2, 6, 7, 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003 to text, Postscript, and XML/DocBook.

Antiword tries to keep the layout of the document intact.

The programmers' version is released under GNU General Public License. Check out the pages of the Free Software Foundation for a more detailed description about this license.

The programmers' version does not contain any binaries, but the sources can be used to compile a Linux version. The sources can also be used to compile a version for most variations of the Unix operating system as well.

Users have reported successful compilations on FreeBSD, Solaris, IRIX, Digital Unix (OSF/1), AIX, SCO and HP-UX.

Currently Antiword is able to convert Word documents to plain text, to PostScript, to PDF and to XML/DocBook.


The conversion to XML/DocBook is still experimental,
The support for the Cyrillic alphabet is still experimental.

What's New in This Release:

Displaying of page headers and footers was implemented for PostScript and PDF output.
"footnote" tags were added to XML/DocBook output.
Support for text removed by the revisioning system was added.
The KDE helper script kantiword was improved.
