It might be simple to code, but having a second program is not simpler
for end-users.  We have had no one else complain about xbase conversion
so I am not inclined to add a second program, especially since you did
not say what your program fixes that the current one does not.

Can you show us exactly what input causes our current code to fail, and
explain why someone with C knowledge can't fix it?
