Very many thanks to philippe brosson for compiling PsionIO on a Mac (using the excellent Platypus tool) and providing these pre-compiled executables. Release notes: 2011-12-08 "in tsv2dbf, I use desc = Desc_Labels; This allows to have the field labels in the DBF Psion file. I have made a minor change in dbf2tsv.c in order to write the field labels in the first line of the TSV file". 2004-04-12 "dbf2tsv and tsv2dbf Mac OS are supporting characters 128-255. I have included psionWRD2text (a port from your Linux software) and text2PsionWRD for Mac OS 8 or 9".
