Name2Win

A tool that automatically adds the correct DOS suffix to Macintosh filenames, depending on the files' types. Also eliminates Windows-incompatible characters from the filenames.
Ideal if you transfer Macintosh files to a DOS/Windows PC.
There is a predefined list of file types included, but if you have a more complete file definition list, you are welcome to send it to me so I can include it in future releases.
