- ProTYPE v1.1 (Macintosh) by Dirk Froehling
- A Macintosh application that allows users to create Apple II files
with the proper filetype. ProTYPE converts files you drag & drop on it to

forks from text files, type the files correctly and convert Binscii files.
It will also preserve file/aux types of all kinds of files inside a
Binscii wrapper. It is scriptable (understands AppleEvents) and can be
used as a helper application for Internet programs so you can tell
Netscape or Anarchie to postprocess all .bsq files with ProTYPE, for
example. Author has classified it as GSWare-ware meaning pay the
shareware fees on a GS product you're using and this product is free. Use
a Mac unstuffing program to create the executable.
