I wouldn't have understood the OP requirement to be that. Word can save files in .pdf format, so I would expect to produce the same results as that with Perl. .doc format is pretty unbreakable, whereas .docx can be parsed because it is nothing more than zipped tree of xml files. The only way I can think of is to automate Word into doing it from .doc, which is pretty horrible.
