It would be much easier to have your code accept both unconverted and
converted files and have the olc write out the new format.

    if (sscanf(line, " %d-%d %d ", t, t + 1, t + 2) != 3)
      if (sscanf(line, " %d %d ", t, t + 2) != 2)
        fprintf(stderr, "Format error in mob #%ld, gold/xp\n"
                "...expecting line of form '#-# #'\n", nr);
And adjust the assignments to fit unspecified values.
