Here you go:

First open the link to the ActiveState documentation. Look up Win32::OLE and check out the example.
Next open word and hit F11. This opens the VBA window. Hit 'F2' or 'View->Object Browser'. Type in "compare" and read the info on how to call the compare method. Hint the example does exacly what you want to do, saveing to a new file.

Now write a script in Perl that creates a OLE connection, issues the compare method, and closes.

If you do not have word installed, then you are going to have to export the data out of word with another application.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
