Ok great this is pretty much what it boils down to:
The .DHW is an extension that is used by ACECAD digimemo digital notepad to store its information. pretty much it is an image file
this perl script file is suppossed to allow me to convert that file to .svg so that I can see my notes and not have to rely on the Windows program to do the conversion for me.
You can download the script and a file that includes a sample .dhw page and a conversion of it into a .svg file at this url:
this folder also includes a word document that explains to you what the .DHW format is.
In essence this script converts the .DHW format into .svg
I hope this helps, Maybe you can help me figure out how to use the program once you download the file.
