Hi everybody,

Is anybody familiar with Big Blue Reader? I'd like to know if I can use it to transfer plain text files from Commodore disks to IBM disks. I've heard that it automatically changes PETSCII to ASCII and back.

Is it pretty easy to find a word processor that runs on the C-64 that can output plain text files, too? Does anybody know where I can get one?

Thanks for all of your help,
Sean

do you need the original software disk or will a D64 image do?

Well, I would need the original software disk. But I'd be very interested in finding out if it will do what I want it to before I buy. I imagine that that information would be of interest to others on the forum, too.

Thanks,
Sean
