Hey, Dave, that gives me an idea: It would be easy to write an HP-71 program that reads the file's data directly from the disk (using IL commands, sector by sector), reconstructs the lines (optionally discarding the line numbers) and writes it all out to an ordinary LIF1 file. Essentially an HP-75 TRANSFORM using an HP-71. Amazing that nobody's done that before (?). Ok, that's Sunday's programming challenge to myself....
