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: è,à,é,ù,ì,ò etc.) are misinterpreted. ASCII converter fixes this drawback and enables you to correctly read the text.
How can I use it?
You can choose the type of conversion, the file creator and you have the option to skip the CR/LF translation during the conversion. This can be very useful if the file has been processed by others applications like StuffIt Expander or ZipIt (because they have the ability to translate the CR/LF characters).
Note: Obviously, this utility became obsolete when Windows started using UTF encoding.
