textconv - optex module to replace document file by its text contents
optex command -Mtextconv
optex command -Mtc (alias module)
optex command -Mtextconv::load=pandoc
This module replaces several sort of filenames by node representing its text information. File itself is not altered.
For example, you can check the text difference between MS word files like this:
$ optex diff -Mtextconv OLD.docx NEW.docx
If you have symbolic link named diff to optex, and following setting in your ~/.optex.d/diff.rc:
option default --textconv option --textconv -Mtextconv $<move>
Next command simply produces the same result.
$ diff OLD.docx NEW.docx
Microsoft office document in XML format (.docx, .pptx, .xlsx) is converted to plain text by original code implemented in
App::optex::textconv::msdoc module. Algorithm used in this module is extremely simple, and consequently runs fast.
Two module are included in this distribution to use other external converter program, pandoc and tika, those implement much more serious algorithm. They can be invoked by calling load function with module declaration like:
optex -Mtextconv::load=pandoc optex -Mtextconv::load=tika
$ cpanm App::optex::textconv or $ curl -sL http://cpanmin.us | perl - App::optex::textconv
These are sample configurations using App::optex::textconv in git environment.
~/.gitconfig [diff "msdoc"] textconv = optex -Mtextconv cat [diff "pdf"] textconv = optex -Mtextconv cat [diff "jpg"] textconv = optex -Mtextconv cat ~/.config/git/attributes *.docx diff=msdoc *.pptx diff=msdoc *.xlmx diff=msdoc *.pdf diff=pdf *.jpg diff=jpg
