       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

       -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	 euro-
	      pean codepage which is always converted to iso-5589-15 if possi-
	      ble. This is the default behaviour. While it is possible to con-
	      vert 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 Eng-
	      lish 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 any-
	      thing; systems that at, wv configure time, prove	to  be	inade-
	      quate  for  charset conversion use wv's internal conversion for-
	      mats 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  ver-
	      sions of word documents given the correct password.

       -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	 docu-
	      ment 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, Post-
	      Script, 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 encap-
	      sulated 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

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

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