Is there a Linux based doc to odf batch converter?

Is there a Linux based doc to odf batch converter? Topic: Pdf writing applications
June 20, 2019 / By Kitti
Question: I currently use Kubuntu Dapper Drake and have some legacy documents made by word 97, 2000, etc and could do with converting them to odt. I can find Windows products that batch convert to PDF but that's not very useful to me. Prefrably it will have a GUI. Links appreciated. PDF is no use to me. Also, I already use OpenOffice but without some (probably complex and time-consuming scripting) it cannot proces batch files, which would be useful as I have dozens of documents, some highly formatted (diagrams, embedded images, headings, indexes, etc), which I need to convert. Is there a simple GUI based application that can do this for me quickly and easily?

http://www.openoffice.org/ will read Word format and write ODT format. It is not batch mode (but maybe - it does have a built-in scripting language and an API for others).

It wouldn't hurt you to know it, but you can still be a successful web developer without ever having managed a Linux machine before. About the most I would probably know is how to FTP/SSH into a Linux machine and how to manage file/directory permissions. That's probably the most you'll ever interact with the machine itself.

Knowing how to configure Apache, PHP, and MySql is a valuable skill when it comes to web development. Understanding the basics of programming languages would not hurt, either. Too many kids learn html and css and think they are hot shot computer programmers, when they don't really know a linked list from a scope resolution operator. Knowledge is power - learn all you can because one day you may be going for a really sweet job, and they only difference between you and the person that got the job is that they knew a bit about linux, and you did not. You don't want to be #2 when the dream job comes along.
