manipulating PowerPoint with Python?

Hi. Has anyone ever written scripts to extract data from PowerPoint using
Python? I know I could dredge through the VB examples in MSDN, and
translate, but if someone's already done this, I'd be grateful for a few
examples. (I have slides done in PPT that I want to convert to simple
HTML --- using "Save as HTML" in PPT creates a lot more goo than I want to
have to wade through.)

Thanks,
Greg

Couldn't you use "Save as HTML" in PPT and then write a simple parser that
would remove the goo? I really don't know which is better because I haven't
seen your ppt generated HTML files, but it's another direction you may want
to look at.

BTW, you may want to check out:

Or find some other parser:

Hope this helps,
