KriptDoc was a simple perl-based KDE 3 graphical user interface for AntiWord which made it slightly simpler to convert a Microsoft Word document to a text-file. It could also extract the metadata.

Bankrupt and Finished


KriptDoc was never ported to KDE 4 or 5. It's website eventually died and KriptDoc died with it.

It's no huge loss; KriptDoc was nothing more than a front-end for the command-line AntiWord utility for converting Microsoft Word files to either ascii or PostScript. AntiWord itself has not been updated since 2005. It is still available from it's homepage However, you will get better results opening Word files in a modern and maintained program like the LibreOffice suite than you will from AntiWord.
