I wrote a script which uses OpenOffice. It can
convert and read a lot of formats.

#!/usr/bin/env python
#Old: !/optlocal/OpenOffice.org/program/python
# (c) 2003-2006 Thomas Guettler http://www.tbz-pariv.de/

# OpenOffice1.1 comes with its own python interpreter.
# This Script needs to be run with the python from OpenOffice1:
#   /opt/OpenOffice.org/program/python
# Start the Office before connecting:
# soffice "-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=2002;urp;"
#
# With OpenOffice2 you can use the default Python-Interpreter (at least on SuSE)
#

# Python Imports
import os
import re
import sys
import getopt

default_path="/usr/lib/ooo-2.0/program"
sys.path.insert(0, default_path)

# pyUNO Imports
try:
    import uno
    from com.sun.star.beans import PropertyValue
except:
    print "This Script needs to be run with the python from OpenOffice.org"
    print "Example: /opt/OpenOffice.org/program/python %s" % (
        os.path.basename(sys.argv[0]))
    print "Or you need to insert the right path at the top, where uno.py is."
    print "Default: %s" % default_path

    raise
    sys.exit(1)



extension=None
format=None

def usage():
    scriptname=os.path.basename(sys.argv[0])
    print """Usage: %s [--extension pdf --format writer_pdf_Export] files
All files or directories will be converted to HTML.

You must start the office with this line before starting
this script:
  soffice "-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=2002;urp;"

 If you want to export to something else, you need to use give the
extension *and*
 the format.

 For a list of possible export formats see
 http://framework.openoffice.org/files/documents/25/897/filter_description.html

 or

 /opt/OpenOffice.org/share/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/TypeDetection.xcu

 or

 grep -ri MYEXTENSION
/usr/lib/ooo-2.0/share/registry/modules/org/openoffice/TypeDetection/
 the format is <node oor:name="FORMAT" ...

 Attention: Writer (.xls) needs an other export format than Writer (.doc)
            Example: calc_pdf_Export instead of writer_pdf_Export
