Subject: Re: 6.0152 Query: Transcribing Character Sets

A partial solution may be had in the Macintosh utility Paradigma written by
Espen Aarseth of the University of Bergen <espen.aarseth@hf.uib.no>. It
allows you to easily set up and apply rule-based string substitutions in
text files. We used it, for example, to convert from the Greek encoding
used in an idiosyncratic font/word processor to the genuinely
bizzare-looking two, three, and four character sequences required by a
publisher's software.

Paradigma version 2.0 is available in the Info-Mac archives by anonymous
ftp: sumex-aim.stanford.edu: info-mac/util directory
