converting to XML?

I don't speak XML, so I was wondering, are there are any utilities that convert a plain text level collection into an XML .slc file?

Thanks.

Hi!

I use a perl script to convert from various formats to XML. The problem is that there are so many different versions of the plain text format, I constantly work on the perl script to make it work.

There is another way. You can import levels into the editor. Start the level editor, open the file you want to import, with for example notepad. Select and copy one level in notepad and do Edit - Paste (or Ctrl-V) in Sokoban editor. This can be time consuming if there are many levels in the file.

Yet another way is to drop me a mail with a link to the level Wink

Yes, indeed. It's fairly quick with collections containing fewer than 50 or so levels.

Erm, I don't think I can. I was hoping to convert my copies of Revenge and Perfect so I can play them with Sokoban for Windows. At 306 levels in each collection, it's a bit of a nuisance to do by hand. As far as I know there are no links to either collection anywhere on the internet, and since they are both licensed collections I don't think it's legal for me to send you a copy to convert for me.

Ah well, it was worth asking. Fool

Those are by Thinking Rabbit, right?
Several of their level sets are widely availably, especially the Original levels... I don't know their position on that, but perhaps they won't mind if Perfect & Revenge is made available too? At least I can hope! Smile

I am VERY interested in getting my hands on those levels...
