Instant document conversions

Want to squeeze a text file out of a Word document you found online, or need a CSV from an Excel file? Use doc.mar.cx! For example,

http://doc.mar.cx/http://www.ieee.org/documents/IEEECopyrightForm.doc

This will give you an HTML version. If you’d like a different output type, insert that type’s extension in front of the URL. For a plain-text version instead, for example,

http://doc.mar.cx/txt/http://www.ieee.org/documents/IEEECopyrightForm.doc.

PDF, HTML, text, CSV, XLS, and DOC output formats are supported on the relevant data types. I’ll soon be adding ImageMagick support to convert from zillions of image formats, and conversions to/from .SHP shapefiles, KML files and other geodata should also be supported soon.

Want to know what input document types are supported? Just try the link. If it works, then that document type is supported. If it doesn’t work, then that document type isn’t supported.
