Dear friends,
If we want to analyze hundreds of FrameMaker files, we need to convert them first to MIF.
Do you know any tool which does it automatically for many files together?

Please reply to Shy Avni avni@safot.com

Thank you and have a nice weekend.

I use a 2-part approach. First, I install CudSpan Doc Tools (available free) to FrameMaker. These tools can run batch files to do many things in Frame, including the conversion.

Then I have a Python script that reads the filenames in the directory and creates a batch file with instructions to convert each file in the directory.

Finally, I run the batch file in CudSpan Doc Tools.
