“TRANSLATE” UTILITY PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION PAGE 2  
"insert dos disk in drive2” and then to “press (spacebar) to continue”  
or “press (esc) to cancel.” First insert your disks as indicated and  
then press the space bar. TRANSLATE will let you know if either disk is  
formatted incorrectly or in the wrong drive.  
Next, TRANSLATE asks you to enter the name of the file to be converted.  
First enter the file name and then press (return). TRANSLATE will let  
you know if it can’t find the file. NOTE: Pascal file names may not  
exceed 15 characters. (That’s INCLUDING the suffix “.text” which the  
program will add if you don’t.) Also note that DOS 3.3 will truncate a  
file name of over 30 characters, and TRANSLATE will convert a DOS file  
name entered in lower case to upper case.  
Finally, TRANSLATE prompts you for the name of the (new) file to be  
created. First enter the file name and then press (return). TRANSLATE  
will let you know if it can’t create the new file; otherwise, the  
process begins. WARNING: TRANSLATE does not check to see if another  
file with the same name is already on the disk. If it is, in Pascal the  
directory listing of the previous file with the same name is removed; in  
DOS a second (or third) file with the same name is created.  
Pressing (esc) after this point will cancel the program and return you  
to the “dos conversion” menu. However, the new file will exist; its  
name will appear on the directory; and it will contain everything  
processed until you pressed the (esc) key.  
Notes and Suggestions  
(1)  
The four “disk manager” options may be used in any order and as  
often as you like, with one exception: DO NOT SELECT THE TRANSLATE  
OPTION AFTER YOU HAVE USED THE FORMAT OPTION. To use TRANSLATE again  
after formatting a disk, you must first turn off the power to your Apple  
and then re—start ThinkTank by turning it on again.  
(2)  
ThinkTank’s STRUCTURED style uses embedded commands such as “.HEAD”  
which may be misinterpreted by a DOS application program when it prints  
your file. This can easily be avoided by removing them before printing  
with the DOS program. Even better, use PLAIN instead of STRUCTURED  
style for this purpose.  
(3) Lines from ThinkTank paragraphs that you ended with hyphens or  
“forced” carriage returns may be missing a blank space after being  
TRANSLATEd into DOS. This, too, can easily be avoided. If you know you  
will be converting ThinkTank text into DOS, do not add hyphens or your  
own carriage returns when creating ThinkTank paragraphs.
