diff-doc-text - Diff the text of two Office word-processor documents (.doc, .docx, .odt, etc)
This document describes version 0.004 of diff-doc-text (from Perl distribution App-DiffDocText), released on 2022-09-08.
Use like you would use the Unix command diff:
% diff-doc-text [options] <FILE>...
This is a wrapper for the Unix command diff. It assumes that each file is an Office word-processor documents (.doc, .docx, .odt, etc) and tries to convert the file to plaintext first. It then passes the converted files to diff.

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.
Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:
% prove -l
If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
