Binary package “catdoc” in ubuntu trusty

MS-Word to TeX or plain text converter

 This program extracts text from MS-Word files, trying to preserve
 as many special printable characters as possible. catdoc supports
 everything up to Word-97. Also supported are MS Write documents and RTF
 files.
 .
 It doesn't even try to preserve fancy Word formatting, because
 Word users usually don't care about document structure, and it is
 this very thing which is important to LaTeX users.
 .
 Also provided is xls2csv, which extracts data from Excel spreadsheets
 and outputs it in comma-separated-value format and catppt, which extracts
 data from PowerPoint presentations.
 .
 This package suggests tk because it also includes wordview, an
 optional Tk-based GUI for catdoc. The MIME config provided in this
 package will use wordview if X is running, or catdoc directly if it
 is not.
