Which files are available that will allow me to replace the control
characters in a 300k file.  All I want to do is replace control-j with
control-m.  However, if there is a program that will allow you to
replace any one character (or more) with any other character (or more),
that would be ideal.  Thanks.

If you have a IIgs with enough memory to load the file into RAM, see if
you can find a copy of* Napoli's "NetEdit".  It's essentially just a
big GS/OS TextEdit window that can handle big files, and has a feature to
strip out LF's.

Barring that, if you need to do it all on disk, you could write a short
BASIC routine to do it in ProDOS...gimme a couple of hours and I'll post
the code here.

If you have a GS, try Textdragon.  This works fine in converting UNIX
files to Apple.  I recall there was an NDA to do this but I can't remember
the name of it or where to find it.

: Karl Bunker wrote a program called LINEFEED.IR that can add
: or strip control-J's from a text file.  It's in the Public-Domain.

Does anyone know where to find this program??
