Comment Hoist - Batch Convert Documents with Your Mac

Thanks to John Johnston (World Wide Wall Display Blog) for his comment on how to batch convert documents on your Mac computer. I'd just shared one way to accomplish this using Abiword on GNU/Linux operating systems at the command line, and he was kind enough to share the Mac way to get it done!

on OSX the command line textutil does the same sort of thing:
for example:
textutil -convert rtf *.doc
converts .docs to rtf
can usetxt, rtf, rtfd, html, doc, docx, odt, wordml, or webarchive too.

Thanks, John!
