Antiword: Read MS Word Documents in Your Terminal

Filed under
Software

Microsoft Word documents, almost ubiquitous in business settings, might be considered a necessary evil for Linux users to deal with. Sure, you can open Word files in LibreOffice, but it’s a pain to wait for a heavy graphical application to load your document. Antiword is a solution that runs in your terminal – perfect for people on slow computers or systems without a graphical environment.

Main Features

Antiword lets you view and convert MS Word documents from the command line. You can convert to the following formats:

Plain text
Formatted text
PDF
Postscript
XML (only DocBook is currently supported)
