Manual n° 2
2in1 Version 1.03
This small utility program is now included external to the 2in1
system. It allows you to translate text files from WordStar
DOCument format to standard ASCII or vice versa.
The tranlation TO ASCII will also work on most other (i.e.non-
WordStar) 16-bit wordprocessor files.
To convert a file, type
at the CP/M prompt. You will then be offered a menu of three
1. WordStar -> ASCII
2. ASCII -> WordStar (Intelligent)
3. ASCII -> WordStar (Dumb)
After selecting an option, you will be asked for the name of the
file you wish to convert and the name of the new file you want
to write the results to.
Option 1 will filter all control codes (other than tabs, CRs,
LFs, FFs) from the text and strip all the top biuts from
character to produce standard 7-bit ASCII.
Options 2 and 3 will do the reverse, producing a file in
WordStar DOCument format with "soft" CRs at the end of lines to
permit easy reformatting of paragraphs.
Option 2 will attempt to do this intelligently by preserving
hard CRs after lines in tables, headings, etc.
Option 3 simply reformats with soft CRs at the end of EVERY line
within paragraphs; do NOT then carry out a global (^QQB)
reformat on such a file if there are any special areas of text
within it (e.g. tables, indented paragraphs or fancy headings).
LocoScript versions 1.2 and above on the PCW can read and write
text files in standard ASCII format. Most PC/MS-DOS
wordprocessors such as Microsoft Word can also do so, or (even
better) can read WordStar format files. Please refer to your
Wordprocessor manual to determine the most effective way of
transferring text between it and LocoScript.
