Mac OS X 10.7.5
I have a need to convert multiple files (may be 100+) to ODT format.
Ideally we would like to start soffice in headless and invisible mode and close it when done.
I was thinking that we should talk to soffice via a socket.
I am doing all this in C++ and was wondering are there any examples of this being done already. Is there a method on an interface that does the conversion for you or do I need to open a document and save it programatically. Currently we call soffice in headless, invisible mode and use the --convert-to parameter but this is slow and requires start up and shutdown time.
