There is another program that is very good for converting files, WinVI. This program will read 
NitrOS-9 files under Windows regardless of the line endings. With the press of a menu button, you 
can see the file in its hexadecimal format and do a single Search/Replace to change all $0D0A to $0D.


You can select a language English, Spanish, or German. Then read about the program and download your 
preferred version.
