in reply to Parsing an MS Word document

Is is absolutely essential that you parse MSWord documents? How about MS Excel? Spreadsheet::ParseExcel provides some essential capabilities.

You might be able to mudge the Word documents into Excel by doing a 'Save As' from Word to Excel... However I'm not certain as to the scope of your project if such a thing would be possible.

A quick trollop through CPAN yielded no hits for 'Word' or 'MSWord' so you might consider a life of fame and fortune and be the first lucky hacker to write such a Parsing Module!! :) :)

    It has to be MS Word I'm afraid. I'm writing a document manager for our Japanese translation department and they store a lot of info in these doc properties.
