I've moved this to the Scripting forum. If it can be done, these are the folks who will know how.
A before and after screen shot would help
A before/after screenshot of what?
Doesn't my original post describe the problem enough?
I'm guessing, and it's just that, that the OP wants to read the image name, then find and place that image as an anchored object. Obviously there's more info that's needed, like where these .eps files are stored (same folder as the RTF, different folder, but all together someplace, scattered, on a network...) and what size they ought to b when placed on the page, inline or in a differnt column, and so on.
Before and after:
screen shot of rtf file with hidden characters shown
screen shot of one page of desired result in InDesign.

Exactly, I want to place the images as an anchored object. I don't know where exactly the images are stored, but they will all be stored in the same folder. They should be placed both between paragraphs and inline paragraphs.
That's roughly what I want. Is it possible? :-/
Example: This equation "image001.eps" shows that blah blah blah...
--> Instead of "image001.eps" the actual .eps file should be shown, that is after the script has been run on the InDesign doc.
Nice to see that somebody understood.
OK, I'm not a scripter. If they want to see the RTF, I guess you should show it to them.
One thing I will say, though, is it's important that you have one set of parameters, or a way to distinguish classes of images for different parameters, for a script to work. Code can't read your mind, so it will only do what it is told to do.
All right. Let me get back to you guys - I'm not at my work computer right now. When I get there I'll make some screenshots showing how the RTF file looks!
one of most important infos will be the size of the eps-files (not the filesize ;-)).
Are they placed 100 %¿
The question, where these images are stored, is important to try to achive this task without scripting:
InD has this feature…"Datenquellen zusammenführen" which lets you create different pages from lists, also with filepaths/pictures:
Needed this pics for a mockup – i dont like him nor his plans.
