This tool attempts to generate equivalent plain text files from
Microsoft .docx documents, preserving some formatting and document
information (which MS text conversion drops) along with appropriate
character conversions for a good (ascii or utf-8) text experience.
It is a platform independent solution consisting of (core) Perl and
(wrapper) Unix/Windows shell scripts and a configuration file to
control the output text appearance to a fair extent.  It can very
conveniently be used to build a Web-based docx document conversion
service.  Some Makefiles and Windows batch files are provided for
easy installation of the scripts.  With unzippers like CakeCmd that
can deal with corrupt Zip archives, this tool can extract text from
corrupt docx documents in many cases, where MS Word fails to even
open them.
