Over the years I've searched unsuccessfully for a simple ODT viewer that
worked, and now have a need for commandline conversion of ODT to PDF. A
search of the Internet turned up mostly old utilities from SWX days, a
number of forum threads of various vintages (none of which offered a
solution) and a more recent Perl script – anytopdf – that doesn't work.
Being something of a Perl aficonado I've been working with this script. To
save space I've uploaded a page with details:

Just to make sure, you know that LibreOffice has the --convert-to option, so you can simply do:

        libreoffice --convert-to pdf <file1 ...>

There's also a tool I wrote that should work on Windows, Linux and MacOSX called 'unoconv', which offers some more functionality. It would be nice if all the functionality of unoconv would be integrated into LibreOffice.

 - influencing the import and export filters, similar to the import/export
   option dialogs in LibreOffice

 - apply template during conversion, so you can apply styling/formatting
   when converting documents

 - so it works when LibreOffice is already running, or multiple instances
   are running in parallel (e.g. for batch conversion)

Currently the --convert-to fails when LibreOffice is already running.
