TextSpresso, the Mac text editor and cleaner from
Taylor Design, has been updated to version 1.8.2, which adds new filters for converting to/from older DOS text files (U.S. and Western Europe code pages).
The editor is used for such tasks as cleaning up e-mails, Web pages, MIME documents, and other Internet text. It’s also used to prepare text for the Internet to insure that it’s readable regardless of transport method or end destination.
The update, free for registered users, also improves several filters, including the e-mail/Web page filter, Net To Text. TextSpresso now has a total of 200 built-in text filters.
TextSpresso requires a Mac or “100 percent compatible clone” with a 68040 or higher processor (but it’s optimized for the Power PC) running Mac OS 7.5-9.x, at least 4MB of hard disk space for the complete install, and a minimum of 4MB of available RAM.
TextSpresso 1.8.2 is available now from Taylor Design and is a free upgrade for registered users. Others may download the demo and use it for free for up to 30 days. Users who register 1.8.2 (the price is US$29.95 for one to four users) will be eligible for a free upgrade to version 2.0 when it becomes available. Version 2.0 will be optimized for Mac OS X, though the current version runs in the Classic environment.
