openoffice in far viewer

Post by joejoe »

hello all,

If anyone interested how to view open office documents in far internal viewer here is solution:

(1) download program which can extract document

(2) download and compile program which can parse openoffice structure

(3) download and compile program which can change encoding from commandline in pipe (compiled version is part of msys or unix utils for windows)

Code: Select all


(4) start far -> command -> file associations -> ins -> ...

here is part of my registry

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"Mask"="*.odt,*.odp, *.ods"
"Description"="Openoffice document"
"View"="far:view < unzip -p !.! content.xml | o3totxt | recode"

A single-util alternative is here: Console Viewer.
