AscToRTF converts text files using clever text-recognition algorithms
that detect the document's structure. These can recognize headings,
bullets, lists, indentation, URLs, tables, ASCII art and much more.
The resulting RTF faithfully reflects the structure of the original
document. The text analysis is performed by the same highly-praised
engine found in JafSoft's AscToHTM text-to-HTML converter.
This easy-to-use program adds value to the RTF e.g. by turning any
URLs or numbered section cross-references into usable hyperlinks and
allowing the user to choose the font settings and document properties
such as keywords and title.
At its simplest you just choose the files to be converted, press a
single button and the results are displayed in your RTF viewer. For
the advanced user a large number of options allow you fine tune the
conversion process. The selected options may be saved in "policy
files" for reuse next time you run the program.
AscToRTF is a great tool for anyone who wants to generate RTF
automatically e.g. to email reports to users, or to batch convert
large numbers of files. It will also help users who wish to convert
large structured or legacy text files to RTF for use in their word
processing packages. It comes with extensive documentation.
The interface can be toggled between English, German, Spanish or
Portuguese, although the documentation is only available in English.
A console version is available to registered users which is better suited
to use in batch mode
