Description scls19fr 2004-10-19 18:03:54 UTC

I write you because it's sometimes usefull to be able to convert a file without
having to enter in the application.

For example :
Dia is able to convert .dia files to .svg using
dia --export-to-format=svg Diagram1.dia

I think such a tool (ooconverter) could be very usefull
to import files to ooo
to export files to an other apps.

For example :
Imagine that I make some drawings using OOo Draw
I use LaTeX so I need to export all .sxd to .eps
Using a bash script to compile LaTeX, I'm able to do it with Dia, not with OO


PS : I know that macros exist but that's not the problem...
ooo should be able to to this in bash.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
