Hello Seattle Perl Geniuses,
First...did you know you can automagically create Powerpoint
presentations with perl? It's true, but there are a couple intermediate
steps and I am experiencing issues navigating the process. I sent the
following query off to the folks who wrote the OpenOffice::OODoc module
and the linked website, but thought I'd share locally as well in case
anyone can help:
I am attempting to use the OpenOffice-OODoc module to create
OpenOffice Impress presentation as described here:
When I do so, the resulting Impress presentation is one blank slide. I
unzipped the resulting .sxi file and found that the content.xml file
places the </office:presentation> tag before the slides. As a result,
you never get to see the slides. SOFFICE apparently ignores the tag and
the presentation can be viewed in its entirety. My question to you is:
how can I correct the content.xml file as produced by the module?
In the attached current_output.txt file, you can see I have changed the
tag in question's font color to red. I moved the tag manually, resaved
the file using WinZIP, and poof! the presentation becomes visible and I
can convert it to .ppt and make the world happy. Otherwise, they just
get one blank slide.
I appreciate any insight you can share.
