How can I read Macintosh-Word documents with linux ? I only want to get
the text !

Is there a possibility to read Winword-documents ? Is StarOffice able to
read Mac and Windows-Word ?

thanks in advance

StarOffice claims to read Word 97 documents.  (The Mac and Windows
versions use the same file format, so they should be equally easy or
hard to read.)  It's not perfect, but if all you want is the text it
should be fine.

Also try `strings` on the file.
