Most people think that converting PG2 maps pictures to Peoples S16 format is tricky or tedious, and although some good solutions have been made by Mark Kirby - the first on doing a batch converter - and later Robert Devore and others, here it is an eaiser tool to do it without editing nanually a set of lines into an script.
This tool can convert all Shp files found in a folder, allocating converted S16 files on another folder within a windows interface.
Two releases are provided:
- 1.03 release is a wrapper program using Fred Chlanda MS-DOS tools. This allows to convert any Shp file into a S16 one maps or icons.
- 1.20 does not use any external tol, but it can only handle picture map Shp files, not icon files.
