Direc­tory support/catdoc

Catdoc is small program which extracts readable text from
MS-Word file. Version 0.90 supports at least MS-Word 6.0, 95 and 97
although you might have some luck even with Write files.

Catdoc can replace characters, which are special to tex and which
are not present in current character set by appropriate TeX commands
(fully configurable).

There are two distributives of catdoc

catdoc-0.90.tar.gz - source only distribution. Works for all platforms
                     if you know, how to unpack tar.gz and compile C
catdoc-0.90.zip - includes precomplied DOS executable. For dos users
                  without tar and C compiler. If you are installing it
		  on Unix, use zip -a to convert text files to UNIX
