Summary     : Convert Docx documents to Text
Description :
Command line utility to convert Docx documents to equivalent Text documents.
It supports the following features during text extraction:

 * Character conversions (" ' < & > - ... fraction and some mathematical
   symbols etc.); currency characters are converted to respective names like
 * Capitalisation of text blocks.
 * Center and right justification of text fitting in a line of (configurable)
   80 columns.
 * Horizontal ruler, line breaks, paragraphs separation, tabs.
 * Indicating hyperlinked text along with the hyperlink. (configurable)
 * Naive nested list formatting - assumed 8 level nesting, however you can
   handle even deeper nesting by commenting/uncommenting appropriate lines in
   Perl script.

Update Information:

### v1.4 : 15/05/2014

#### New feature:

* Added configuration variable `config_unzip_opts`. This removes dependency on `unzip` program, and allows users to use unzipping programs like `7z`, `pkzipc`, `winzip` as well.

#### Updates:

* Fixed list numbering.
* Improved list/paragraph indentation and corresponding code.
* Updated `README` with brief guidance on how this utility can be used to recover text from a corrupted docx file.

### v1.3 : 07/04/2014

#### New feature:

* Added support for handling lists (bullet, decimal, letter, roman) along with (attempt at) indentation.

#### Updates:

* Added configuration variable `config_twipsPerChar`.
* Removed configuration variables: `config_listIndent`, `config_exp_extra_deEscape`.
* Text output omits deleted text. This matters in case changes are being tracked in a docx document.
* Text output omits non-document_text content marked by wp/wp14 tags.
