File transfers between
RISC OS and Windows.
This page contains helpful advice on the best way to transfer files between machines of different types.
From PC to RISC OS:
This is the easy bit as the DOSMAP command in your Boot file can be used to interpret any incomming files and apply the appropriate file type. You should have an entry:

to handle incomming ProCAD+ files.
From RISC OS to PC:
This is not so straightforward as Windows is not so helpful. Filetypes have to be replaced by extensions and some text files need to have an carriage return character inserted before each line-feed.

But I've got hundreds of files to transfer!
