Converting nroff format files to Word Perfect compatible.

Converting nroff format files to Word Perfect compatible.

Post by Brett Wor » Fri, 31 May 1991 13:14:29

Has anyone ever converted nroff format files to Word-Perfect compatible?

I have some files which are produced in nroff format which need to be
converted to WP format on a regular basis.  

They consist of tbl format lists in about five columns.  Even converting
to a regular ascii file would do.  I have tried to filter them through
col but the vertical bars still get printed on the line followed by a CR
and then the text for the columns.

If anyone has a simple way of doing this I would love to hear about it.

1. Converting Microsoft Word Mac file to MSDos format via UNIX...

Hi, all!

   There are some Microsoft Word files on my school's Unix machine
that I would like to download and look at. Unfortunately, the
files are in Macintosh format, and I have an IBM-compatible
machine. I have Word v5.25 for my computer.
   Are there any utilities for Unix (or DOS) that will convert
these Mac files into files that my computer can handle? I believe
the Mac files are stored in Unix in some intermediate format...
when they are downloaded onto a Mac, some type of protocol called
"Apple Single" kicked in and converted them into standard mac files.
I guess I need something like this for my pc.

If I've misdescribed something, I apologize, but I didn't actually
see what happened when the Mac downloaded the files, so I really
don't know if Apple Single is a format, protocol, file type, etc.

Any info, advice, etc is greatly appreciated!
