Do you have perl?  If not, you can get it from  If
you have an old version (I think the latest is 5.0004 or something like
that), upgrade.  If you're curious about the syntax and there's no readme
available, open up the script and look at it.  You'll probably have to run
it as, "perl 128conv2" with any additional arguments it wants.

       can be run in any of the three.
