catdoc + xls2csv

Version: 0.94.2 || Release Date: 2007-03-02 || License: GPL Developer: Vitus Wagner | App Owner: malecki

catdoc does what it sounds like: cat a word doc file as if it were a normal, readable, plain text file. It also can output tex or latex friendly text, converting quotes and some special characters to their tex representations.

xls2csv is sensibly named too: it takes a bloated, unreadable binary excel xls and turns it into a text file with comma-separated values.

Both support a wide array of character encodings and translation.
