is there a way to get a hold of openoffice's encryption method for the writer?


because when i read a open office file i get the following.

4�S☼∩aUΦR ⌂╘�_k�╓�����3▌D≤\ⁿ�┴Φ▐░
#k'�?=▓φφh ╜/O*═╞█<j═U┼>╡♣←▼╞8.�╩7≈│╞≤PX&&♫≥<�nF▒≤░σφ?╧C

and the above isnt even the same output as i got in the cmd prompt
but its weird like that none the less.


You down with OOP? Yeah you know me!

is it truly an encrypted file? or is it just in a standard Opendocument Text (ODT) file format?

If it is a standard format document, then you should be able to get the document encoding from the openoffice.org site.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
