file is good but not perfect. Much of what it does is based on
guesses, hacking closed or proprietary formats and other kludges. So
take what it returns as an educated guess. Looking at the web page, I
see a reference to the HP 41, an HP calculator of yore. So I doubt
those utilties are what you want.
