    I can get wvHtml to work if I run it in the directory containing the file to be converted:

    wvHtml greek.doc greek.html

    However, when I try to convert a document contained in the /tmp directory I get the following:

    wvHtml --targetdir=/tmp greek.doc greek.html

    error: 'document.doc' unreadable

    Any ideas why?

    Thanks

      Solved my own problem, this is an excellent utility but it could do with some better documentation!

      to specify a file in a different directory use the following

      wvHtml --targetDir=[path to file's dir] [path to file's dir]file_in file_out

      e.g.

      wvHtml --targetDir=/tmp /tmp/greekin.doc greekout.html
