Fresh on the heels of my recent PDF experience ...

Does anyone have a patch/instructions/external parser for MS Word files?

There seem to be 4 parsers, with various limitations:

word2x
http://word2x.astra.co.uk/
- don't know what versions

catdoc
http://www.fe.msk.ru/~vitus/works/works_unix.html#catdoc
- up to Word97 (same as 7)

LAOLA/ELSER
http://wwwwbs.cs.tu-berlin.de/~schwartz/pmh/laola.html
- only Word 6 and 7

MSWordView
http://www.csn.ul.ie/~caolan/docs/MSWordView.html
- only Word 8

Has anybody set up one of these (or something else) as an external parser
with ht://dig?
