The aim of this program is to convert an ASCII file to its
JASCII equivalent in the various japanese encoding standards.
Ascii2J infile outfile [JIS/NJIS/NEC/EUC/SJIS].
where infile is the input file to be converted to JAscii,
the format will be the chosen output, you can choose among
(Old)Jis, NewJis, NEC, EUC, Shift-JIS.
E.G.: Ascii2J kinokuniya.txt kinokuniya.njis NJIS.
a file kinokuniya.njis will be created.
This program is provided "AS IS", with NO warranty at all.
Use it at your own risk, I'm not liable for whatever damage it can
C source is included (this is not GPL,at least not yet, read the source).
Should work on ANY Amiga, it is 101% ANSI C and thus is possible to
recompile it without changes on other systems (this doesn't mean I allow
to do it), this version is compiled with SasC 6.58 for the 68k side and
VBCC 0.7 for PowerPc and WarpOs, GCC 2.95.3 for the Morphos compile,
GCC 4.0.0 for the AmigaOs4 compile.
o GUI; (this will spoil the portability anyway)
o Support for Unicode (but I need proper docs), XC;
o Make it possible to convert back to ASCII;
o Any idea?
o 1.0t First upload to Aminet;
o 1.0y It is now possible to use files as input;
Fixed a couple broken codes;
o 1.1a Better error handling;
o 1.1b Better indented code, updated docs, minor changes;
o 1.1c Changed syntax, suffix automatically created for the output file;
o 1.1f Readjusted buffer size, major restyling of the source,
changed internal handling, updated docs, updated online-help;
o 1.1i Fixed error handling, minor changes,
converts most non-alphabetical characters,
fixed bug with SJIS: numbers were shifted by one,
included 3.5 icons;
o 1.1j Source code should be more readable and portable, switched to
o 1.1k Solved ANSI compliance issue, PowerPC and WarpOs versions added,
had to change syntax;
o 1.1l Got rid of non printable characters in the source code;
Fixed a problem with CR codes;
o 1.1m Added Morphos and Os4 binaries (the latter thanks to Spot/Up Rough),
kept same internal revision string, removed expired email
address from the inline instructions;
