       odt2txt - a simple converter from OpenDocument Text to plain text

       odt2txt [OPTIONS] FILENAME

       odt2txt is a command-line tool which extracts the text out of OpenDocu-
       ment Texts, as produced by, KOffice, StarOffice and oth-

       odt2txt	can  also extract text from some file formats similar to Open-
       Document	Text, such as XML (*.sxw), which	 was  used  by  version 1.x and older StarOffice	versions.  To a	lesser
       extent, odt2txt may be useful  to  extract  content  from  OpenDocument
       spreadsheets (*.ods) and	OpenDocument presentations (*.odp).

       The FILENAME argument is	mandatory.

	      Wrap text	lines after WIDTH characters. The default value	is 65,
	      which means that any words which would extend beyond  column  65
	      are moved	to a new line.

	      If WIDTH is set to -1 then no lines will be broken

	      Write output to FILE and not to standard output.

	      Select  which  non-ascii	characters  shall be replaced by ascii
	      look-a-likes. Valid values for SUBST are all, some and none.

	      --subst=all Substitute all characters  for  which	 substitutions
	      are known

	      --subst=some  Substitute all characters which the	output charset
	      does not contain This is the default

	      --subst=none Substitute no characters

	      Do not try to autodetect the terminal encoding, but convert  the
	      document to encoding X unconditionally To	find out, which	termi-
	      nal encoding will	be used	in automatic mode, use --encoding=show

       --raw  Print raw	XML

	      Show version and copyright information
