Your lack of ambition is troubling

    Never ask for a pony when you can ask for a unicorn! :-)
    A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

      Here is something that gives you the page numbers for a small document, say 5 pages:

      perl -e 'print "$_\n" for (1..5)'

      This gives the text but no page numbers.

      use strict; use warnings; use Text::Extract::Word; my $file = Text::Extract::Word->new("test1.doc"); my $raw = $file->get_text(':raw'); print $raw;
