Software News   Software News : Doc datatypes registration available
   posted by Swoop on 25-Oct-2005 15:50:49 (1856 reads)
The Doc Dataypes (v40.41), are now available to register see Doc Datatypes

This site has been dormant for sometime, I had originally tried to get registration details back in march 2005, but I was unable to get a reply from the author.

The demo version on the site available from that site, which seems to work correctly, except that they only display the first 25 lines, and then a message about registering if you wanted to view the whole file.


I have just registered these with the author and installed them on OS4 yesterday.
I have only win98 msword docs to try out but they seem to be read fine. In Notepad and mutiview I used to get a load of gobbledegook before and after the text in the file, now it just shows the text.

Luckily I was at a venue close to his address, and was able to drop in the registration fee myself, but the author himself was out.

DocDatatypes is a set of Datatypes classes for documents. It is a subclass of the text.datatype.

Quote:

DocDatatypes Lite contains only the msdoc.datatype, rtfdoc.datatype and the wpdoc.datatype.

The msdoc.datatype currently supports the reading of the following data formats:

Number6, gave me a link to an .rtf file, and it displays as formatted plain text in multiview.
When I compared it with the HMTL version the text is exactly the same, with the same paragraph, and spacing, but is in the default font.
So it seems that there is no file corruption using these datatypes.

Tested:-
Win98 doc files, and rtf doc files.
Firbodi has also tested XP doc files and they work perfectly OK, although he has only the demo version installed.

For viewing Word documents in OS4, you can also use this tool:

http://os4depot.net/share/utility/text/convert/antiword_os4.lha

Using a modified version of its viewword.rexx file, in YAM I can just double-click those lousy Word attachments and they are automatically displayed in AmiPDF, properly formatted, including any embedded image(s).

Normally I don't need to edit those documents so PDF works fine for me, but it's possible to generate other output formats with AntiWord, if needed.

My YAM:REXX/Word2AmiPDF.rexx file looks like this:


/* Word2AmiPDF.rexx */
/* Convert word attachments to PDF and display with AmiPDF */
/* YAM MIME settings */
/* Type: application/msword */
/* Extension: doc */
/* Viewer: RX YAM:Rexx/ViewWord.rexx %s */

options results

parse arg file

address command "Sys:Utilities/AmiPDF/AntiWord >T:AntiWord.pdf -a letter -i 0 " || file
address command "Sys:Utilities/AmiPDF/AmiPDF T:AntiWord.pdf"
address command "Delete T:AntiWord.pdf"

exit

/* EOF */

@AmigAlex

Thanks for the script. Changed only the path for the antiword (amipfd/antiword/antiword). I deleted src, docs and keeped data
as its needed. I believe docs isnt need as it works without.

So now i can read .doc's in pdf format.

Thats very useful, I actually print to PDF on the PC, and read them in AmiPDF on my A1.

Antiword only supports word 6 documents, not the range supported by these datatypes. The usefullness of these datatypes, is that you can load these type of docs within Amiga datatype aware programs. So if you need to use, or import doc formats then just reading them is not very useful. On the other hand if you only want to read them then your solution is very useful.
