WoW : the official page
(Attention, images are not reduced)
Thanks for visiting this webpage about my first "big" project on Amiga. You maybe found out WoW the year before with the Blitz version. This is a new one completely rewritten in C, started the last winter.
I wish this tool will be useful for you. If one of the following questions , you should appreciate WoW
These are targets to shot in a short delay
- You want to print brightly an HTML page and your browser doesn't support it
- You want to extract and get raw text from various files (Wordworth, Word, Rtf (Mac or ANSI), HTML, PDB (compressed or not), AmigaGuide, Postscript)
- You want to save a Wordworth document in a good and complete Rtf format ?
- You want to print a ASCII file using Postscript quality
- You want do use various options for each conversion
- You want to create web pages from your Wordworth documents
It exists many other tools allowing various text conversions, but some give no interface or disappointing results or no option.
This program isn't perfect but it should give you a great help.
These are some adjectives describing WoW :
- Easy : the WoW archive contains the minimum amount of files (exe +
- Powerful : WoW provides you standard conversions but others really
- Cheap : WoW is offered for free in a full version for a legal usage
- Evoluting : WoW is in permanent development and comments and ideas are
- Practical : WoW provides an easy interface using MUI or a call with a
- Free : WoW may be distributed without any restrictions, you don't
need any approvement
- International : WoW manage the standard Amiga localization (catalogs
included in the archive)
- Complete : WoW provides different options for each conversion
(Between brackets, the actual state of the conversion in the date of 07/08/00 - v1.10)
- Ascii -> Ascii : This standard is not a real one, it's necessary to
manage the different implementations
- AmigaGuide -> Ascii : may be useful
- Html -> Ascii : To keep only the essential from a web page
- Pdb -> Ascii : PalmPilot becomes really current, as Web articles in its PBD format [100%]
- Rtf -> Ascii : If your wordprocessor doesn't support Rtf ... waiting for a better solution [supports ansi accents]
- Postscript -> Ascii : A PAO document impossible to read ? [not very good but allows to obtain raw text]
- Word -> Ascii : Read a annoying Word text (formats Word 2, 6, ... supported) is no more a problem
- Wordworth -> Ascii : An ASCII text saved too quickly into Wordworth ? [100%]
- Ascii -> HTML : Avoid to add HTML tags manualy over a plain text
[generated code awnsers the W3C standard]
- Wordworth -> Rtf : Will offer a better export than Wordworth 6
itself [for now, only document parameters and text attributes (style, fonts) are supported]
And don't forget : if you want to see a new conversion, write me a short email.
If there is a problem with the above conversions, please send me the file if you want I solve that.
New features of the version 1.24 :
- Wordworth -> HTML : new conversion ! Supports HTML version 3.2. Manages standards characters, sizes and styles, justification, and header informations
- changed GUI : options are now on the main panel, no more logo
- new arguments management, it's possible to have a short help about a done option
- new internal data structure to develop quicker and better in the future. For the moment, only converters which treat Wordworth files are concerned
- Wordworth -> RTF : manages styles, paragraph justification
New features of the version 1.20 :
- FinalWriter -> Ascii : new conversion !
- Rtf->Ascii : solves the header problem with some RTF versions
