Recosoft Corp. of Japan has released a
beta version of VINC, an integrated document viewing and converter application for the traditional Mac operating system and Mac OS X. The final version is due next month.
VINC provides rapid viewing and conversion of files created in word processing and graphics software. It solves common document exchange problems encountered as a result of cross platform environments, Intranets, and the Internet, according to the folks at Recosoft.
With it, you can view the text of word processing documents and image of graphics files without possessing or using the original application in which it was created. You can also convert document files from one file format to another, including switching Mac files to Windows or vice versa.
VINC retains document formatting attributes including styles, paragraph indentation, headers, footers, sections, tables, even embedded graphics. Plus, it provides support for Japanese language word processing files. The utility also has a batch conversion facility that can convert all files in a folder by simply targeting the folder.
