 Cracking Open Proprietary Envelopes

Linux Gazette tells us about cracking open proprietary envelopes.

"For instance, some MS Word documents being forwarded around the Net contain ordinary JPG and PNG images embedded within the file. If we can find a way to remove the envelope, reading these enclosed files would be a straight forward matter. The following sections describe how this can be accomplished using a little Python scripting together with a few image viewing and manipulation tools available on most Linux distributions."
