A few months ago, I had one of those unpleasant format conversion jobs. I had about 1,000 multiple choice questions in RTF format and needed to import them into Moodle.

RTF is, as file formats go, somewhere between the good and the evil. It looks like one should be able to write a parser for it, but that seems like a dreary task. The miracle of open source came through for me, though, in the rtf2xml project. Paul Tremblay authored a converter that faithfully converts RTF to XML, where you can process it with your usual XML tool chain. I just love it when someone else's labor saves me many hours of drudgery. Thanks, Paul-if we ever meet, I will gladly buy you a beer :-)

My first inclination was to use XSLT to transform the result into Moodle XML format. But I quickly realized that I would have gone insane in the process.
