Thanks for the appreciation. My definitive RTF programming book, for people like me who do not have the time and/or inclination to read the Microsoft documentation, is Burke (2003), as recommended in -help rtfutil-. The accompanying Web page contains some quick reference material.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further queries.

Best wishes

I am using the rtfutil commands (thanks to the author for this amazing
tool as it saves me a lot of efforts !!!) but get stuck in doing the
following things (I googled but the answers found are not working):

- how do I color some text or areas in my rtf file
- how do I insert headers and footers
- how do I insert page numbers, footnotes and paragraph/section numbering
- how do I put my text in italic and underline
- how do I put some text or an image in a box
- etc.

Can someone recommends me a good rtf programming book?

Thanks in advance.
