Please note that this software was written to work with Risc OS 3.7. It may work with later (and earlier) 26-bit versions of OS but is unlikely to work with the 32-bit versions on the Iyonix.

There is nothing I can do about this. My Risc PC died early in 2005 and nothing I have tried will bring it back to life. All the source code is on its hard drive. I probably do have copies on floppies but without access to the machine I cannot read them.


Version 1.23
8th October 1992

I wrote this application some years ago in order to help with converting text files from programs such as Edit into a form more suitable for word processors and DTP packages.

The basic idea is that it can convert text files containing tables laid out with spaces into tables laid out with TABs. It’ll also fiddle around with line endings if you like (e.g. converting single line endings to spaces and multiple ones to single ones). It can’t solve everything but usually helps a lot.

The main window still uses Risc OS 2-type icons. Sorry about that!

Please note

The software on this site only runs under Risc OS. It will not run under Windows, DOS or any other PC thingy.

Of course it won’t run under Mac OS, Unix or any other operating system either but then if you use one of these you’ve probably sussed that out already. It seems to be only PC users who have trouble in this respect :-)
