OleFileIO_PL module: OleFileIO_PL is a Python module to read Microsoft OLE2 files (also called Structured Storage or Compound Document File Format), such as Microsoft Office documents, Image Composer and FlashPix files, Outlook messages, etc. This is an improved version of the OleFileIO module from PIL, the excellent Python Imaging Library v1.1.6, created and maintained by Fredrik Lundh. (See http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/index.htm) The API is still compatible with PIL, but the internal implementation has been improved a lot, with bugfixes and a more robust design. As far as I know, this module is the most complete and robust Python implementation to read MS OLE2 files, portable on several OSes. WARNING: THIS IS (STILL) WORK IN PROGRESS. INSTALLATION: - on Windows, launch install.bat - on other systems, launch: setup.py install HOW TO USE THIS MODULE: See http://www.decalage.info/python/olefileio See main at the end of the module, and also docstrings.
