odt2txt is a command-line tool which extracts the text out of OpenDocument
Texts, as produced by OpenOffice.org, KOffice, StarOffice and others.
odt2txt can also extract text from some file formats similar to OpenDocument
Text, such as OpenOffice.org XML (*.sxw), which was used by OpenOffice.org
version 1.x and older StarOffice versions. To a lesser extend, odt2txt may
be useful to extract content from OpenDocument spreadsheets (*.ods) and
OpenDocument presentations (*.odp).
It is small and fast, can output the document in many encodings and
adopts to your locale.
