ruby_powerpoint is probably a decent place to start:


Note that it only works with new-style pptx files.

For the old format, GOOD LUCK. They are poorly-documented and tricky to
work with. Tools like Docsplit
might do what you want for these, but they depend on LibreOffice - and
correspondingly, can only read PPT files that work in LibreOffice.

One gotcha: none of these will replicate any of the more complex
(animations, transitions). ruby_powerpoint doesn’t even give text style
info back, just text and images.
