Hi,

How do I open files in gnome terminal that are OLE2? Regular commands like cat, zcat do not work.
Thanks

OLE2 is a proprietary Microsoft format. The Linux terminal (command line) is not at all an adequate way of dealing with such filetypes.

If you know you are dealing with a Microsoft Office file, use OpenOffice. In other cases, try the Gnome Commander: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNOME_Commander

It may already be available in your distro's repositories.
