odffindbasic - Basic macro removal from OpenOffice.org files
odffindbasic [options] <sourcefile> [<targetfile>]
A simple command that allows the user to detect, export or remove the Basic modules from a regular OpenOffice.org file.
Without option, the program displays the number of Basic modules found in the file.
The 2nd filename is used in combination with the --delete option.
--nocount Prevents the program from displaying the number of Basic modules found. --delete -d If this option is set, the Basic modules are physically deleted. The file manifest is updated accordingly. However, the document content remains unchanged, even if it contains some references to the deleted macros. The code is removed (so the macros are no longer executable). If a target file name is provided as a 2nd argument, the changes are saved in it and the source file remains unchanged. --export -e Exports the macros. Every Basic module is extracted and converted to a flat Basic source file in the current directory. The name of each created file is constructed according to the corresponding path in the ODF file, and its suffix is "bas". --list -l The Basic modules are listed through the standard output. --verbose Some information messages are printed.
