You could try to use one of the tools provided in the ports
then continue to remove macros to gain plain text
same game here
this is a tool that gives XML output - maybe usabe for
further input to AbiWord
includes processing like a) and b), and some more formats
Which tool to use depends on how you intnd to further use the
documents. If it's just about the text, the pure filter programs
should be sufficient. Otherwise, try to load them in OpenOffice
and see how you can export them from there; ^A ^C and ^V into
a text editor should work from there, too.
Oh the joy of nonstandard file formats. :-)
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
