Thannks for quick reply on PM.
I thought I reply here so others can benefit from our PM discussions.
Your program crashed on my VMWare Win7 instance when tryign to save/export to Mac share folder (on OS X host). I'll try to reproduce it again and report the results.

ON CSV thing....
Yes it stands for comma separated values or something.... I use it to read fonts "bitmap" as text strings. every font, line by line. zeroes and ones chars are there to tell me the font type. later I read it as strings - line by line, Java and C# does it without a hassle.
what i can export from my in-house tools (namely Ms Excel ;)) is 0,1,1,1,1,0... kind of file. commas are not needed. if you can export it other string readable way that would be great. byte form is probably OK too but I wasn't able to export due to crash on VMWare mentioned above.

will let you know more about the crash tomorrow when I reporduce it.

the tool crashed when exporting to binary data.
Actually this is a feature I need for my personal project :)
any chance to have an exporter to CSV or other .txt based format?
