wv2ogg is a tool that uses wvunpack, oggenc, and vorbiscomment to encode wavpack files to Ogg Vorbis files. The quality setting that will be used for encoding the Vorbis files can be set when running wv2ogg. It will also transfer all tags and replaygain information from the wavpack files to the Ogg Vorbis files by default. wv2ogg was written because no other software that would do this existed for Linux.
docx2txt is a tool that attempts to generate equivalent (ASCII) text files from Microsoft .docx documents, preserving some formatting and document information (which MS text conversion drops) along with appropriate character conversions for a good (ASCII) text experience. It is a platform independent solution consisting of (core) Perl and (wrapper) Unix/Windows shell scripts and a configuration file to control the output text appearance to fair extent. It can very conveniently be used to build a Web based docx document conversion service. Some Makefiles and Windows batch files are provided for easy installation of the scripts. With unzippers like CakeCmd that can deal with corrupt Zip archives, this tool can extract text from corrupt docx documents in many cases, where MS word processor fails to even open them.

If you wish, it can also remove your MP3 files after conversion.
