OpenOffice or LibreOffice

Postby _savage » Wed Oct 02, 2013 4:50 am

In order to digest DOC files usually written using Word, I access the UNO API from Python. This works fine most of the time (except when the built-in Python crashes or has other hick-ups).

But with OpenOffice and LibreOffice out there, I wonder how this impacts the API and how this impacts loading DOC files into Writer. What's your experience, where are pit-falls, which are advantages/disadvantages of one over the other?

Thanks :)

You can install as many office suites as you have disc space.

I don't know how this answers my question.

Go forward, don't hesitate, do your thing and run your code. Both applications are able to tell you anything you need to know.
