File Conversions? (TDA, DCPS)

» close window

The Question is:

In a previous q? to the wizard, someone asked about Regis conversion to
 postscript.  you answer was to check the DCPS? package. My question is
 two-fold--1. Is DCPS package still available or is it now part of or what is
 being called "Digital GKS ver. 6.5"
? and 2.Is there any conversion tool for TDA's(TechnoCad?)files to either CGM
 or Regis? Pardon my problem in not using all the correct terminology  or in
 wording of my questions--I'm just trying to pass-through info from one of our
 programmers who is on s
ite w/o commercial wb access.

The Answer is :

  DCPS is currently available, and is quite unrelated to GKS.
  The OpenVMS Wizard is unfamiliar with the details or conversion
  options for the particular TDA files, and assumes that these are
  produced by a third-party application, or are potentially related
  to the TEAMDATA package.  (TEAMDATA was retired circa 1993.)
