I am trying to convert documents using abiword and then would like to output the result to stdout, so that I can use that in my php application. I am able to convert, but was unable to find anything that worked to get the output to stdout, I tried this: abiword --to=txt testfile.rtf fd://1 - this I found on: http://www.abisource.com/mailinglists/abiword-user/2009/Mar/0003.html Its not working. any ideas? thanks in advance.
