Hi
Wrote this years ago but recently updated. Old version crashed at 255 lines or more. This version should be safe up to 32767 lines although the general feeling is that Starturns will accept up to 480 lines unless you know better!
It's main purpose is to produce text files of sta files for backup purposes but also allows you to write txt files and convert them to sta binaries. It can also shove out the sts file.
It doesn't check compatibility! Use at own risk! It's free! There's no instant support but I'm always interested in anybody who's interested in this project.
Source is in pascal, that's also free if you pm me, as is help, when my life allows!

I don't seem to be able to upload and exe file so here's a link, maybe a kind moderator would like to get the file and make it permanently available to the forum?

Original link was wrong link, try again duh!

Have fun!

EDIT: link now dead, download below.

Enter as much information about your CNC hardware and software as you can - it makes it easier for everyone to know what you're talking about then.
Hi, .exe files are blocked by most browsers and virus checkers so you just need to .zip them up...

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Mr Admin

Yes of course, I seem to be getting thicker as I get older!

Thanks for zipping up and posting.
