MIRAMAR MAKES MAC FILE RENAMING UTILITY AVAILABLE ONLINE
AKA Makes Cross-Platform File Sharing Fast and Easy by Renaming Mac
Files with PC File Extensions
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., April 21, 1999
Miramar Systems, a leader in
cross-platform networking software, announced that its versatile
Macintosh-based file renaming utility, A.K.A., is now available for
online purchase. A.K.A. enables PCs to recognize Mac files by adding
PC file extensions to Mac files and replacing illegal PC characters.
The smart utility has the capability of learning new file types and
automatically adding them to its already vast Character and Extension
Mapping databases. These databases may also be edited manually to
recognize unique or custom applications.
A.K.A. is Miramars Mac-based solution for cross-platform file
sharing, commented Mike Sheffey, Miramars Director of Sales. Its
a fast and easy alternative to the labor-intensive task of manual
file renaming and extension adding.
A.K.A. is especially effective when used in conjunction with PC
MACLAN, Miramars cross-platform connectivity software, and PC
Migrator, the PC-based file renaming and moving utility.
In addition, A.K.A. supports wildcard searches that add PC
extensions based on partial Creator and Type information. This
feature guarantees that files created by various versions of the same
application or similar types of application files will be assigned
the same extension.
A.K.A. also provides users with comprehensive logs of all
modifications made during the search.
Availability, Price & System Requirements A.K.A. is currently only
available online through Miramars web site at
www.miramarsys.com/akapr.htm to US and Canada. The manufacturers
suggested retail price is $19.95 for a single user license. The
utility runs on Mac OS 7.x or higher and requires 1MB of RAM and 1MB
of hard drive space.
