Converting Arc/Info 5 and 6 to e00 for use with ArcMap
Tonight I was helping Kurt convert some of his old Arc/Info version 5 and 6 files into .e00 files so that he could actually read them. It took some hunting around, but I finally found a handy little open-source tool that did it for me. AVCE00 is written in C, and the website has a pre-compiled version that will run on a Windows command line. I think Kurt may have plans to add it to fink so it can easily be used on a Mac as well. Remember, if you want to be able to view the data in ArcMAP 9.x, you can use the import71 tool located in C:Program Files/ArcGIS/Bin to convert the .e00 files into compatible coverages.
