You can write the text in Abi-word and save as a .doc-file (MS word). At least that's what I've heard Smilie

Check out StarOffice for similiar functionality to Abi-Word. It has done a decent job with Word Documents. I don't know about the new StarOffice 6.0, but 5.2 didn't support TrueType fonts out of the box.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can save a file as *.txt in UNIX then mailx it to the MS system. Then open the file as Word and save it as a *.doc file.

That should do what you need. Of course you will have to format the font from courier to something more pleasing.

I reserve the right to be wrong. As always.Smilie

I'm confused.... a "UNIX document" is simply an ASCII text file, right? MSWORD can easily import ASCII text files. I take files from UNIX systems and regularly read them into an MSWORD document, and then reformat if required.

Isn't this all the poster wants to do?

Maybe this person really doesn't know. If they are a total newbie to UNIX.

If they chose they can even, cut and paste out of a telnet window, depending on the amount of text.


You should read my post that is the exactly what you need. If I understand you correctly. Just converting UNIX doc to WORD doc. Easy!!!
