Docx2txt is a Perl based command-line utility to convert (even corrupted) Microsoft docx documents to reasonably formatted text files, along with appropriate character conversions. Apart from Perl it also requires a command line unzipping program like unzip/7z/pkzipc/wzunzip.


  • Consists of (core) Perl and (wrapper) Unix/Windows shell scripts and a configuration file, with provision for maintaining separate system-wide configuration file and individual user-level configuration files.
  • Perl script also works with input/output redirection, and is useful in viewing docx file content directly with editors like vim, emacs, and file browsers like mc (midnight commander).
  • Can recover text from damaged docx documents in many cases.
  • Short line justifications, showing hyperlink and many character conversions (missing in MS text conversion).
  • Handles (bullet, decimal, letter, roman) lists along with indentation.
  • Installation via Makefiles and Windows batch file. On non-Windows systems scripts and configuration file can be installed in separate directories.
  • Can conveniently be used to build a web based docx document conversion service.
