I have a small project that requires extracting several Unicode characters from a Word document as uncompressed high-resolution screenshots. The only problem is that I don't have Word -- nor do I run any operating system that can run Word.
Has anyone solved a similar problem? Are there any Win32::Com gurus who know the magic invocations to dump a few dozen Kana characters to images? I suspect a decent hacker could do this in 15 minutes or so, much better than the 10 hours it would take -- if I had the tools -- to convert these manually.
Drop me a line at chromatic at oreilly dot com if that's you.
