Description: A program for converting Microsoft Power Point Files .ppt
The ppthtml program will take a PowerPoint 97/95 file as input and
convert it to html. The output is via standard out so it can be
re-directed to files or piped to filters or used as a gateway to the

but to be honest, it's not that great. I use it to allow mutt to display
the text of ppts inline in emails but that means I get a very restricted
view of the output.
OpenOffice should be capable of the task but the question is how to script
it. This guy seemed to think it could be done with v1 by calling macros
from the CLI so maybe it can be done similarly with v2.
If you figure out how to do it with OpenOffice please let us know. I'd
very much like to have a general openoffice based conversion script which
would do ppt2swf, ppt2pdf, sxw2html, etc. Something equivalent to Caolan's
WV tools but providing all the formats readable/writable by OOo.
