ppthtml - A program for converting Microsoft Power Point Files .ppt
This manual page explains the
ppthtml program. The program
ppthtml is used to convert Microsoft Power Point files into either html or tab delimitted ASCII. The program can be interfaced with helper scripts for viewing email attachments. Most use of this program is through the helper scripts and one would probably rarely resort to using the commandline interface.
To interface to Netscape Navigator: first locate the help scripts nspptview & nsopen. Go into the Edit Preferences dialog box. Click on the Navigator Category and hilight the Applications menu item. Look for Microsoft Excel Worksheet. If you dont see it create one. The MIME type should be: application/vnd.ms-powerpoint The suffixes should be: ppt,ppa,pps,pot,pwz In the handled by section of the dialog box, check the Application checkbox and set the path to wherever the nspptview helper script is located and pass a %s argument. For example, if nspptview is located in /usr/local/bin, then you would put:
in the Application path box.. (As a side note, make sure the nspptview script can find the ppthtml program or it wont work.) Click on the OK and you are done. You should be able to use the Test.ppt file that is distributed with the program to verify its configured correctly.
