If you're looking for a small-footprint program for viewing
information in a .DOC file, and you don't find or like mswordview,
try 'strings'
[schaller@lisa local]$ ls -l `which strings`
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root  root   13328 Feb  4 12:54 /usr/bin/strings*

There's also a little perl program somewhere that tries to parse
the word document type ... all I can remember now is that a guy in
Europe wrote it, and it uses a perl library called 'elmer'. If
you're curious, drop me a note and I'll search more bookmark files

citizen of South Carolina, I'd be deeply ashamed. Now, what's this about a
flag?" Irene Lewis, Actuary.
