       wvWare - convert msword documents


       wvWare  [-c  charset]  [--charset  charset]  [-p  password]  [--password password] [-x config.xml]
       [--config config.xml] [-d dir] [--dir dir] filename


       wvWare converts word documents into other formats such as PS,PDF,HTML,LaTeX,DVI,ABW

       -c charset, --charset charset
              word 97 documents are stored in one  of  two  formats,  either  in  8  bit  windows
              codepages or in 16 bit unicode. The unicode can be converted easily into utf-8, and
              the codepages are promoted to unicode and converted  from  there,  except  for  the
              western  european  codepage  which  is always converted to iso-5589-15 if possible.
              This is the default behaviour. While it is possible to convert into  other  formats
              or to force a conversion to a particular format, it is not recommended as you don't
              get a guarantee that the output will be correct. For instance, if  you  convert  an
              English  document  into  koi8-r encoding then it will be wrong, but if you are sure
              then you can override the default output format. The charsets  that  are  available
              depend  on  your system: systems using the gnu libc 2 and above can convert to just
              about anything; systems that at, wv configure time,  prove  to  be  inadequate  for
              charset conversion use wv's internal conversion formats which are a small subset of
              the possible conversions, namely: utf-8 iso-5589-15 koi8-r tis-620

       -p password, --password password
              Due to heroic work done by a great team of workers,  the  wv  library  can  decrypt
              password  protected  word 97 and older versions of word documents given the correct

       -d dir, --dir dir
              If dir is used then any created graphics will be  placed  in  this  directory.  The
              default is the directory in which the word document resides.

       -b name, --basename name
              Use name as the base name for image files.

       -a format, --auto-eps format
              Depending  on  whether  images  of  type  format  can be automatically converted to
              encapsulated PostScript, print "yes" or "no" and exit.  Encapsulated PostScript  is
              required  for  LaTeX,  PostScript,  and  PDF output.  Currently possible values for
              format are "wmf", "png", and "jpg".

       -s format, --suppress format
              Suppress automatic conversion of images of type format to encapsulated  PostScript.
              Currently possible values for format are "wmf", "emf", "png", "jpg", and "pict".

       -1, --nographics
              Suppress output of embedded images.

       -x config.xml, --config config.xml
              Use  this  to give the location of the config file. If not used, the config file is
              searched for by first checking the current directory, and then by  looking  in  the
              install location (/usr/local/lib/wv/wvHtml.xml by default)

       -X, --xml
              Produce XHTML-like XML output (as defined in /usr/local/lib/wv/wvXml.xml).

       -v, --version
              Print wvWare's version number and exit.

       -?, --help
              Print a help message and exit.
