>The original file is not
changed and stays out of harm's way. CAB works with any binary format
(.EXE, .COM, .PDF, .ZIP, .MSI, etc., etc.); it does a good job of
rendering the text portions of Word (.DOC) files (once you scroll
past the initial garbage).
This is quite nice. Incidentally, DOS Word 5.0 (not Y2K compliant, but which I still use) or 5.5 (Y2K compliant and freeware: http://download.microsoft.com/download/word97win/Wd55_be/97/WIN98/EN-US/Wd55_ben.exe) can call binary files, and one can do search and replace and save the file as text (unformatted). Of course, a hex editor is less tricky.
