Well I hate to burst your bubble but... we process more than 7000 files in a single operation and have been now for well over a year on a weekly basis!
I'm always happy to publish such corrections :-)
- The largest number of files converted in a single operation is reported by a user as 2,000. This used the wildcard operation (just type in a wildcard). As they said in their mail "that saved me so much time!"
A few weeks later another user reported they were about to convert 3,000 files...

- Christian Computing give AscToHTM a great review. To quote selectively from this:-
If I were still creating web pages for a living I would quit. No one would want to pay me to do something as easy as AscToHtm makes it.

- all these pages move to a brand new site... www.jafsoft.com.
- The largest file converted by AscToHTM (that I know of) currently stands at over 55,000 lines... a healthy 2.5Mb of source file. This was an 1,100+ page manual which AscToHTM converted into a linked suite of over 300 HTML pages weighing in at around 5.0Mb. The conversion took about 20 minutes per run on either OpenVMS alphas or NT Intel 233s.
Mother and baby are both doing well :-)
