Up to Converters from PC Textprocessors to LaTeX - Overview


rtf2latex2e is a utility to convert RTF files from popular word processors to the LaTeX2e format.
rtf2latex2e uses the RTF reader (external link) package by Paul DuBois to parse the RTF code and generates an appropriate LaTeX (external link) file.

rtf2latex2e was developed on under Mac OS X but should compile under any Unix variant.
