Question:First time poster here. I’m trying to convert one or multiple .docx files to PDF but I can’t figure out how to do it without importing any libraries/modules aside from what is available in python 3.3.
I’ve read through the packages documentation but nothing stuck out as a solution. I also don’t know what I am looking for as I am pretty new to python. I found plenty of articles and resources that mention how to do it with an imported library, but not without.
Is it possible to accomplish this without importing a library?
Any advice/resources are welcome.
Answer:Code it from scratch. If you’re not going to use an external library, that is by definition pretty much your only option.
You’ll want to become an expert in the formal specifications for both PDF and MS Word. Given the complexity and history of each of those, I expect a senior developer will want 6-12 months of experience with each to obtain the necessary understanding.
You should also have 6-12 months’ experience with Python, since you’ll likely need to be familiar with the language in order to define and use all the functions you’ll need. But in just a few years of dedication, you should be able to write the necessary code.
MORE REALISTICALLY, import Python libraries for managing PDFs and MS Word. That should only take a week or two.
If you have better answer, please add a comment about this, thank you!
