This project was started with Ian Redfern results (http://www.redferni.uklinux.net/visio/) and was greatly improved by knowledges extracted from libgsf. For discovered parts of format look into docs/vsdformat.txt.
All good strings of code were stolen from Jody Goldberg and Morten Welinder works. At the moment the code is considered to be a set of testing utilities that support a process of format researching only.
By side effect it's also some kind of 'documentation' =)
Anyway at the moment it can dump version 6 (Visio 2k) and 11 (Visio 2k2 and 2k3) files to something almost but not entirely unlike the tea^H^H^H XML. Embeded images (if any) will be stored in separate file(s). Text (at least latin-1) also will be recognizable in the 'drawing' dump file.
