An Open Source graphics import filter for MS Word

The Eternal Squire writes "A general purpose passthrough import graphics filter compatible with Microsoft Word 97 or 2003, allows the ability to paste graphics of potentially any format into a Word document. Compiles with Microsoft Visual C++ 6 or above.

The guiding principle is that of an import filter skeleton as COM client to a COM server as rendering engine. A sample rendering engine project is included.

see http://sourceforge.net/projects/unigrafwd for downloads.

The zip file is a production release of skeleton sources with an immediately usable binary, all freeware under the GNU LGPL.

Code is fairly well documented, and there are also some basic instructions for installation and use."
