wv 1.2.9

Microsoft Word conversion library and utilities

wv converts files written by Word 2000, 97, 95, and 6 (known internally as Word 9, 8, 7, and 6) to HTML or LaTeX. Word 2 documents can still be converted to plain text but will lack formatting.

Other programs can use wv as a library to convert Word documents to other formats. AbiWord uses it as its Word importer, and KWord uses concepts and code from wv in theirs.


Install wv 1.2.9 as follows:

guix install wv@1.2.9

Or install the latest version:

guix install wv

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
