    You might try convertlit. It would be easier if you still have a Windows machine around to do the conversion.

    Thanks that looks like it might be the answer if I could get it to work. I downloaded the mac compiled version but it just appears to be a text file that opens in Terminal with instructions.

    Yes, you need to run it from the Terminal command prompt. The text you are seeing is the help screen that prints if you don't supply the name of a file to convert.

    OK thanks for that.

    I downloaded the clit file to my download folder on the desktop and opened terminal and changed the directory to the desktop. But then what?

    I typed in the name of the file I want to convert, which is on the desktop but it returned a 'permission denied' message.

    Is there something else I should do. I've checked the FAQ page on clit but there's not much there.
