WP CONVERTER by Richard Karsmakers

Everybody  must  have been annoyed one time about the  fact  that 
ASCII  files  cannot be reformatted in a program like  "1st  Word 
Plus".  I  was very annoyed as well recently,  and I  decided  to 
develop  a  tool  that would made an ASCII file a  true  WP  file 
(including those 'justify' space codes).  The program is included 
on  this  disk of ST NEWS in the PROGRAMS folder under  the  name 

The  remarks I added to the program should make clear how it  all 
works.  You just enter the file you want to convert in the  first 
File Selector,  after which it is converted.  Once that's done, a 
second File Selector appears,  in which you can specify the  save 
name.  That's  all.  The file can then be loaded into  "1st  Word 
Plus" and you can reformat whatever you want!

Watch  it:  All codes '20' are converted,  so TABbed spaces  will 
also be reformatted then!

The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
