Document converter

how to build a simple document converter program in rust language ,which convert ppt to doc or vice versa . what all necessary things are needed for this.. ?

Microsoft Office formats have a reputation of being hard to work with, so it doesn't seem like a simple task to me.

If you're familiar with these formats, then you could do it the hard way, and write a parser from scratch, reading them byte by byte.

For pptx/docx, you need xml and zip processing.

There are some existing libraries for these formats, e.g. https://lib.rs/msoffice_pptx https://lib.rs/oox https://lib.rs/docx https://lib.rs/docx-rs https://lib.rs/dotext
