There is one more thing: catdoc is not actively developed since 2005. Doctotext was started in 2006 and will have new functionalities, like for example pdf support. You can consider it as a future replacement.

We could try to add something to catdoc, but we started new project because of licensing issues (we need to use doctotext in our commercial software).

It supports more formats (OpenDocument, Office Open XML) and as far as I know some inconvenient DOC documents are handled better.
