Using Command Line to open a password protected ODS file

Postby ambidext » Thu Mar 08, 2018 5:26 am

Hi all, recently installed OpenOffice 4.1.5 on a Kali Linux VM. For an assignment, I need to open a password-protected ODS file. All I know is that this password is a 4-character password, and I have a simple python script to randomly generate all possible ascii characters (a-z, 0-9), but I'm finding a way to input these generated random passwords into the password prompt when I open the file. Is there some parameter I can enter the password into when launching from terminal?

office filename.ods -password

or something like that? Please help!
