10.4 Convert document formats on the command line
Authored by: morespace54 on Mar 05, '08 10:46:07AM

That would be:

textutil -convert fmt filename -output path/to/newfile.fmt

So let's say you have a document named "MySource" in a RTF format (in your current directory) and you want to save the result as a file named "Result" in a TXT format (in your Documents directory), you would do the following:

textutil -convert txt MySource.rtf -output ~/Documents/Result.txt
