      Seems very nice. It's *almost* what I was looking for -- freeware,
      command-line, simple to use. It's only fault is that it apparently
      doesn't support UNICODE. Unfortunately, for what I'm trying to do
      Unicode is essential.

      After I sent that message I kept searching, and eventually found a
      program called TextPipe ( http://www.datamystic.com ) that does what I
      wanted -- kinda. It's a Windows application, instead of command-line,
      and has a hundred more options than I needed, in a somewhat confusing
      interface... and it's not free (it actually costs US$ 395,00!!). Like
      using a nuclear missile to kill a fly. But the 30-day demo version is
      fully functional, and so I managed to do the conversion with it. I hope
      I didn't forget a file, though...


      Want a stupid answer? Ask me anything!
