[NPL] ASCII Converter 1.3
From: Marco Bambini (marco@spiderlink.it) Subject: ANNOUNCE: ASCII Converter 1.3 What is Ascii Converter? ASCII converter is a simple "drag and drop" application that converts text files from Windows to Macintosh and vice versa. MacOS and Windows use two different ASCII tables (a way to represent the characters) so when you open a Windows text file with a Mac application all the special characters (like: ,,,,, etc.) are misinterpreted. ASCII converter fixes this drawback and enables you to correctly read the text. With this version (1.3) you can choose the creator of the converted file and you can skip the CR/LF translation during the conversion (see the ReadMe file for more information). For more information, or to download a free copy, visit http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Network/7185 (software section). Thank you for your time, Marco Bambini
