As often, it's good to check The CPAN Search Site. See Win32::OLE

_($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q/)Oo.  G\        /
                              /\_/(q    /
----------------------------  \__(m.====.(_("always off the crowd"))."
");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

    I work in UNIX with Word docs
      If you have some windows server sitting around, you could give a try to Docclient.

      If not, I don't know of any perl module that does that. (hmm... somebody working on a perl port of Jakarta POI out there?).

      But then, as UNIX is, I would grab mswordview and run the output through HTML::Parser or such.

      _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q/)Oo.  G\        /
                                    /\_/(q    /
      ----------------------------  \__(m.====.(_("always off the crowd"))."
      ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
