Use a Microsoft product that works on many different platforms. You will be able to use scripts to execute your programs and manage your office through programming languages such as: Visual Basic, C++, Delphi, VBscript and JScript. Internet Explorer and Windows Script Host will execute the scripts.  The code in the example below opens a new writer document and insert some text.  An instance of the class will start automatically even

 if OOo is not up and running. Save the code in a file and name it test.vbs.  Now, Open your command line and type:  csript test.vbs

 'The service manager is always the starting point

 'If there is no office running then an office is started up

 Set objServiceManager= WScript.CreateObject("")

 'Create the Desktop

 Set objDesktop= objServiceManager.createInstance("")

 'Open a new empty writer document

 Dim args()

 Set objDocument= objDesktop.loadComponentFromURL("private:factory/swriter",_  "_blank", 0, args)

 'Create a text object

 Set objText= objDocument.getText

 'Create a cursor object

 Set objCursor= objText.createTextCursor

 'Inserting some Text

 objText.insertString objCursor, "The first line in the newly created text document."&_ vbLf, false
