I just noticed you wrote docx2txt "could be a starting point, but I am having some difficulties to figure out how to integrate it into my application."

It seems pretty straightforwared to me, but here's what I did in case you need it: I just kept docx2txt in a separate file out of laziness and just used
system ("perl \"$pathtodocx/docx2txt.pl\" \"${infile}.doc\" \"${outfil +e}.txt\"");

Now, my app needs to run on both *nix and Windows, and Windows compatibility required quite a bit of trickery. I modified the .pl slightly, bundled an unzip program with my application and wrote some code that generates a .config for docx2txt at runtime, to let docx2txt know where unzip.exe is. It's not what I would call elegant, but it works. If you need this to run on Windows computers other than your own, I can paste the code here.
