HI,

Does anybody know how I can convert Excel or Word Documents to HTML using a Linux command line driven tool.

I don't know C/C++ so I would not be able to create one using certain libraries.

I am hoping somebody knows of a tool that can already do this.

I have had no luck searching the WWW...

I know of a Linux GUI tool, but not a command line one.

StarOffice, free from Sun ( http://www.sun.com ) will read .doc and .xls files and will allow you to save them as .html files. The resulting code is not compliant with the latest xhtml standards, but it is usable and a heck of a lot better than the mess Word produces.

Ok, I take it back. htdig includes 2 tools that do this. One is conv_doc.pl and the other (and probably better one) is doc2html.pl.

You can find htdig at:

http://www.go.dlr.de/fresh/unix/src/www/.warix/

Or, if you are using an RPM based distro, you can just install the htdig RPM.

I really don't know of anything for XL.

Thanks for the feedback.
Sorry for the delay ... I have just upgraded my server from RedHat 6.1 to RedHat 7.1 (kernel 2.4.5) --> Wow lots has changed.

I tried using wvware and it works great on text. I know the question did not specify that I needed graphics but I will raise the points to <<<<:-300-:>>>>> if there is a  command line driven tool that converts XLS/DOC to HTML and it extracts/converts GRAPHICS.

OR

Alternatively is there a tool that can convert PDF to HTML! (also needs to extract/convert graphics)

Thanx!

That seems a difficult task... I don't think you'll find such a tool.  I didn't even manage to extract pictures from documents with Microsoft Word, exept with a screenshot !!

good luck!
