As it has been mentioned before, there's not the "one tool" for everything, but you can easily use OpenOffice to process most of them, and finally turn them into plain text, either by using OO's export function (save as text), or ^A ^C, change to your favourite text editor, ^V ^S. There are of course command line tools that let you do this without interaction, which is great when you want to process a bunch of files. > If not, is there at least a tool that converts these formats to TXT?

If the Kindle does support PDF (I don't know if it does), wouldn't that be a better alternative, because it lets you keep the format of the document? -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
