Help....

I have left a message for help on the bulletin board ref:

I have approx. 200 pages of data from an Atari 800 word
processor that I would like to transfer over to my Mac Plus
format. The word processor stores the files so that they are not 
readable by a normal Disk Directory command. Is there a way to 
make these files visible (and save me a lot of typing) I can
then send them 9600 baud direct or over the modem.The word
processor for the Atari is by LJK (Letter Perfect)

Thanks for any help

     My first attempt would be to print
the file to disk.  That is start the
printing command normally, then when 
you get the P: prompt, change it to
Dx:filename.ext.  If this doesn't work,
get back to me at aa271 and I'll get
ahold of the CACE LJK expert.
