IOF XML v3 to PPEN File Convertor

Choose XML file to convert

Specify Map filename:

Select map scale:

Select course kind:

This script converts an IOF XMLv3 file to a PPEN file. You need to pick the XML file, and also supply the name of the map file used to create the course(s) in the XML file, as the control locations are specified by location on that map. You will need that map file, as well as the generated PPEN file, to open the course with Purple Pen.

Warning:At present this script is under development, experimental, and only a minimal conversion is done. You will need to edit the resulting file in Purple Pen to add and save additional required items. You may also want to first edit the PPEN file with a text editor, with care, to correct any incorrect attribute guesses, or event title.
