I've been asked to find a way to convert Microsoft Word files into TIFF files, so that each page of the original document is turned into a single image in the generated TIFF file.
For interoperability: TIFF images are used everywhere in our system and exclusively in other internal systems with which we must communicate.
The process must be scriptable and run unattended in a Unix box.
Your best bet in that case would be using AbiWord (http://www.abiword.org), which can generate images of the pages directly.
Thanks, I'll look into it.
Keep in mind that the only software that can reproduce Word files 100% is Word - so if you can't use Word, yuo need to be prepared for less-than-perfect renditions.
We realize that and we are not looking for a perfect match, just to get usable images out of the document pages.
