What's it useful for?  Changing the line ends of text files so that
they can be used on the Amiga (line feed), Macintosh (carriage return)
or IBM PC (CRLF).  It doesn't need to be told what format the input is
(it accepts any of them).

AGMSFixText was written as an exercise in making user interfaces, so
you can use it from the command line or as a workbench program.  Both
have lots of bells and whistles (about 95% of the program is user
interface code).

There are some other useful text fixing features: AGMSFixText can be
told to strip the high bit from the characters (sometimes a problem
with various BBS and other services that set the high bit).  It can
remove ANSI escape sequences.  Finally, it can remove all control
characters (except tabs and line ends which get left in on purpose).

There isn't any documentation; it should be easy enough to use.
AGMSFixText supports icon tooltypes (see the included icon or run
AGMSFixText on itself to find likely tooltype strings), a ReadArgs
command line (with extra help text if you know how to get it), the ASL
file requester, hot keys, progress bar, shift-clicked icons (the first
becomes the input and the second the output), font sensitivity (limited
to Topaz sizes), descriptive error messages, and a few other things.
