CONVERTER information

New users of MF:
You may disregard this converter. You won't need it.

The converter supplied will take an existing MF database (one with
a 'M1.00' if you try to 'TYPE' it) and convert it to M1.02 format.

The converter is supplied as a DLL and a sample C application with
the DLL code embeded in it.

You may use either or create something of your own.

MF will NOT support the old file format anymore. (If you are wondering
whether you have the old format -- type the database:
TYPE
at the DOS prompt. If it says "M1.00" then you have the old format.
(More than likely, you have the old format...)

-----

Using these programs:

The DLL:
You may call the DLL from C, VB, whatever with a filename (LPSTR)
of a database (no extension) to convert.
The converter will do its job and return.

The EXE:
Pass a command line parameter and the converter will convert the passed
filename.

Make your own:
You may copy this source in to your own application if you wish.

----------------------
DISCLAIMER:

This utility is provided as is with no warranty what so ever.

You should back up ANY database before you convert it -- no
guarantees are provided.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
