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!
