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 1.02
22nd October 1992

You may sometimes want to put an existing text file on your site. This usually means that you need to go through the file adding new paragraph tags and the codes for special characters (such as < and >).

This command line program takes care of that for you. It’ll convert multiple line breaks into single new paragraph tags (<p>) and convert reserved and top-bit set characters (such as accented characters) into the correct codes as either named entities such as &eacute;, or as numbers such as &#233; depending on the switches used. Stick it on your system somewhere on run$path and run it from the command line or a task window.

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 :-)
