Re: Question



XyWrite is the best program I know of for cleaning up ASCII files. 

I convert documents among HTML, WordPerfect for Windows, bibliographic
databases downloaded at the library, etc. I usually convert them to ASCII,
as an intermediary or final output. They often require some cleaning up.
(Carrier returns, blank spaces, etc.)
