I need to access a .docx, converting its content i txt. No fancy formatting needed. I am experiencing several issues with Win32::OLE (everything worked fine with .doc files and Word 2003). Therefore I would like a pure perl solution. For the same purpose with Excel I use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel.
Anyone know a script/module or whatever for doing this? As docx file are zipped XML file, it could be possible to parse it. But maybe it is not that straightforward. And I don't want to reinvent the wheel... Google search only showed me docx2txt (http://docx2txt.sourceforge.net/). It could be a starting point, but I am having some difficulties to figure out how to integrate it into my application. Any advice would be great. Welle
