Hello,
How do you convert txt file downloaded from pointshare exchange in to 
that charset?
I'm really confused of those charset.
I found sisulizer kaboom, it's converter between charsets, but I'm 
confused of parameters, that you wrote.
Thank you.

> Program: mklsdb (make Loadstone Database)
>
> Author: Grzegorz Zlotowicz (grzezlo at wp.pl)
>
> Version: 0.1 (experimental)
>
> License: Freeware.

> Mklsdb is a program to generate a binary database for a Loadstone GPS.
>
> It requires the external dbshell program, (version 1.1) available on 
> the internet at:
>
> http://garawaa.googlepages.com/
>
> Installation
>
> Unzip the dbshell program to some empty directory, for example c:\dbshell.
>
> Then, unzip the mklsdb.zip in the same folder as dbshell.exe.
>
> Make sure, that mklsdb.exe and emptyldb.dat are unzipped.
>
> Usage:
>
> 1. Prepare a Loadstone import text file, downloadable for example from 
> the Point Share Exchange website.
>
> 2. Convert this file into plain Ascii (no ansi, no utf-8, only 7-bit 
> ASCII)!
>
> 3. Run the mklsdb program from any directory, giving as an argument 
> the import file name, for example:
>
> c:\dbshell\mklsdb.exe c:\loadstone databases\some data.txt
>
> 4. The short beep will be heart, signing the start of the import.
>
> In the same time in the current working directory a file named ls.db 
> will be created.
>
> Mklsdb produces no output messages, only error messages in case of 
> troubles.
>
> Be carefull not to press any keys as arrows, letters and so on, 
> because this can spoil one or more lines which mklsdb sends to the 
> dbshell program.
>
> You can switch into an other window safely.
>
> Look at the ls.db file during the process, the growth of the file size 
> will give you an idea of the import progress.
>
> When import will finish, the next short beep sound will be generated.
>
> 5. Note that the file size of the database is now few times smaller 
> than during import - it's because of "compact database" operation.
>
> 6. Now manually rename the ls.db result file into some name more 
> significant to you, and then copy it into the loadstone "databases" 
> directory.
>
> Any comments will be appreciated.
