This might help, if not then tell us what you have investigated and
what further information you need.

My apologies in that case. Sorry to all. Just that with the volume of emails on Rails Talk and the increased number of questions like "I want to do this - send me code and everything else" (which I see as an indication that Ruby is gaining mass adoption), I probably missed the message.

Again, sorry.

Cheers,

Look at AntiWord: http://www.winfield.demon.nl/

I'm working on a custom parser that uses antiword to generate a semi-
formatted text file, then parses through the text file. It's ugly, but
it does work. If you just want to extract the information, antiword is
the way to go. :slight_smile:
