Using LibreOffice 3.4/3.5.
I want to run LibreOffice in--headlessmode for
converting files from .doc to .txt, and want to try outboththe socket and pipe methods.
However, what is not clear to me is this...
1) With thesocketmethod: If I specify an
arbitrary port (instead of the default 8100) in the--acceptargument, how does the the
connecting client (a shell script) know
about this port. In other words, where/how do I specify the port
in the connecting client shell script?
2) With thepipemethod: Do I have to create
the pipe myself (usingmkfifo)beforepassing its name to the--acceptargument, or will
LibreOffice automatically create the pipe for me? Further, how do
I tell the connecting client (again, a shell script) about the
name of this pipe?
Would greatly appreciate if you could give an example invocation
each for the listening and connecting sides, for both the socket
and pipe methods. I have searched the Net far and wide but haven't
found any relevant information.
Many thanks in advance,
