lc2ascii Commodore 8 bit!
LoCase2Ascii convert By Anders Persson 2005
A tool for converting a "mixed case" (LoCase+UCase) petascii text file into
an Ascii text file (for Windows, Amiga, Unix - not DOS!)
(This is the mixed case you see right now.)
* The program will run on any 8-bit Commodore.
* Fast conversion. (for being Basic)
* Swedish characters (åäöÅÄÖ) are being converted.
* Compatible with TextWalker and HTML Walker
* Optional chr$(34) conversion, for usage with TextWalker.
(Use any sign, for example #, and then you can set the conversion
program to exchange all # to " (which normally can't be used
in TextWalker because of the data lines.))
Use with TextWalker
To convert a text written in TextWalker to a text that can be used
in Windows, first select a disk device as the output in TextWalker,
select Formatted or Html. (For some reason, it doesn't work
to save Formatted to 64HDD for me, but that could be a problem
for me only.) When you have this text (or html) file, it IS a petascii
file that has to be converted to Ascii. This is what LoCase2Ascii
does. Just load the program and select the file you just saved.
You can either convert directly to a 64HDD device to get it to
the PC, or to your floppy for later transfer to the PC, for example
with the Star Commander program.
Notes The program reads the text in hunks of 8 bytes
to speed it up. Because of this, the end of the file can't be
detected more precise than within 8 bytes. So please check the end of the
resulting Ascii file for any unwanted characters.
The program behaves differently depending on how much memory
you have. On the unexpanded vic 20, more repeated sessions of
reading, converting and writing will occur.
Well, Have fun!
This doc was written on a Plus/4 and the program was written on a vic-20.
