document converter with python and open/libreoffice
docConvWP (it is actually .zip, you have to rename it, after you downloaded it) is a python script that converts .doc- into pdf files. optionally you can extract the images (the converter of libre/openoffice extracts them while converting a document into a web document.
you can call the script via:
# python start.py (doc-dir) (pdf-dir) [image-dir]
Then the script goes into every dir in doc-dir and puts all .doc-files as .pdf into the pdf-dir (plain, without the old folder-structure). I work with a script made by oooninja, which does the whole part of the converting. in order to start the converting process, you need to start open/libreoffice into some kind of server mode.
