Windows version of Antiword 0.37 (21 Oct 2005)
Note: Locale support is broken for Cygwin, cf. http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2004-09/msg01705.html.
A known workaround is to use Xlocale.h instead of locale.h,
but this unfortunately doesn't work for the standalone version as a call to setlocale() will hang.
Therefore, if you need locale support, either rebuild Antiword using Cygwin--or, better yet, send me a working patch...
Here you find a Windows version of Antiword written by Adri van Os.
Please also note that you do not need the forementioned environment in order to run the provided binary as it uses "Windows-native" libraries only.
- antiword-0_37-windows.zip contains the ready-to-use binary along with the needed mapping files,
to be unzipped into a directory of your choice (be sure to read the enclosed file 00README.WIN)
- Note that the current programmers' version (to be found on Adri's page) already includes suitable makefiles needed to build the binary yourself using a current release of the Cygwin UNIX environment.
If you encounter any platform-dependent problems with this version, please let me know. I will then try to fix them as soon as possible.
And just in case I goofed up something, you'll always find older revisions (starting with 0.34) in the subdirectory outdated/.
