     This VB5 program can parse large text files reading in a chunk at a time and will replace UNIX Lf chars with Windows CrLf's, or vice-versa. It uses API to boost performance and is very fast. Demonstrates finding and replacing text that crosses over the chunk boundaries - and is further complicated by the need to access the previous char to avoid replacing a Lf with CrLf if already preceded by a Cr. Uses no VB6 only functions and is just 32k compiled with no compiler optimizations. Includes word list to parse - a tiny file really at 4.5 MB but parses in a blink even in the IDE. Hope someone finds it interesting, or even useful! Happy coding, Rd :)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
