Load text from an office file like .docx .xlsx .odt .ods on the command line with the free Open Source tool Swiss File Knife

sfk oload in.docx +...

load office file content as plain text,
for easy display or further processing.

about line wrapping

- when sending to a command that expects
  text lines like
     sfk oload in.xlsx +filter ...
  then long lines or stream text will be
  hard wrapped at 4096 characters.

- when sending to stream capable commands
  like xed and xex data is not wrapped.

options
-utfout    keep raw UTF-8 encoding on output, to use it
           with further commands requiring UTF-8 data.
-raw       get raw xml data, for content analysis.
           implies -utfout.
-subnames  with .xlsx files only: add header lines
           with sheet subfile names.
