I usually output text from my shell to file using
>. I am trying to find an equivalent process that outputs a MS Word document (.doc or .docx).
I was thinking to use libreoffice and came up with this using the convert-to command:
echo "texthere" > tt.txt; soffice --convert-to doc tt.txt
That is, I am first creating a plain txt document and then convert it to doc in a second step.
Question: Is there a one-step solution?
E.g. along the lines of:
echo "texthere" | command_to_output_as_doc filename.doc
Thanks! (I'm using GNU bash, version 4.3.48(1) on Elementary OS)
