There is a utility program which is part of the TURBO POWER
TOOLS which does exactly what you want. I can't seem to find
the source code anywhere, but if I do, I will be glad to tell
you exactly how it is done.
If my memory does not fail me, you might want to try this
command, which I suspect might also work:
PIP ascii.fil = wordstar.fil [Z]
The Z option masks out the most significant bit from the
source file. I believe that WS uses that bit for it's
internal use. Let me know if this works.
