NAME
       wvWare -	convert	msword documents

SYNOPSIS
       wvWare [-c charset] [--charset charset] [-p password] [--password password] [-x
       config.xml] [--config config.xml] [-d dir] [--dir dir] filename

DESCRIPTION
       wvWare  converts	 word	documents   into   other   formats   such   as
       PS,PDF,HTML,LaTeX,DVI,ABW

   OPTIONS
       -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	recomended 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 li-
	      brary can	decrypt	password protected word	97 and older  versions
	      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.

       -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/lo-
	      cal/lib/wv/wvHtml.xml by default)
