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,
