 (Joseph Pallendino)

supposed to convert an Atari program to IBM.  The program unarced ok and a
program called mule.com appeared.  I tried loading mule.com from DOS
2.5 Binary Load but the computer locked up.  If you have time could you
please tell me how to run it.
  My program is a Basic and I'm under the impression that mule.com is the
only program that I need but I have Action Cartridge and C Compiler if
 these are needed.
  Thanks.

**** Answered by Michael Current, aa700:

Mule is a package that will allow you to copy files between Atari and
MS-DOS systems.  It requires a disk and drive capable of enhanced density
on the Atari end.  Mule.com runs on the Atari, while mule.exe runs under
MS-DOS.  The mule.arc contains mule.com, plus the source code to both
mule.com (in Action!) and mule.exe (in Turbo C).  Mule.exe is a separate
file on the Archive, plus there is also a third file called mule.txt that
describes the package.

Hopefully that'll help you, because I have no experience using Mule, does
anyone else?
