       ppthtml - A program for converting Microsoft Power Point	Files .ppt

       ppthtml Filename

       This  manual  page explains the ppthtml program.	The program ppthtml is
       used to convert Microsoft Power Point files into	either html or tab de-
       limitted	 ASCII.	 The program can be interfaced with helper scripts for
       viewing email attachments. Most use of  this  program  is  through  the
       helper  scripts	and one	would probably rarely resort to	using the com-
       mandline	interface.

       To interface to Netscape	 Navigator:  first  locate  the	 help  scripts
       nspptview  &  nsopen. Go	into the Edit Preferences dialog box. Click on
       the Navigator Category and hilight the Applications menu	item. Look for
       Microsoft  Excel	 Worksheet.  If	 you don't see it create one. The MIME
       type should be:	application/  The suffixes should be:
       ppt,ppa,pps,pot,pwz  In the handled by section of the dialog box, check
       the Application checkbox	and set	the path  to  wherever	the  nspptview
       helper  script  is  located  and	 pass  a  %s argument. For example, if
       nspptview is located in /usr/local/bin, then you	would put:

       /usr/local/bin/nspptview	%s

       in the Application path box.. (As a side	note, make sure	the  nspptview
       script can find the ppthtml program or it won't work.)  Click on	the OK
       and you are done. You should be able to use the Test.ppt	file  that  is
       distributed with	the program to verify its configured correctly.
