And that's how you can tell that it's a command-line tool.

Perhaps he is suggesting that he is actually Godzilla? :shrug:

If you call poking you from the FUTURE, yes. Way to bump a (stickied) thread that is two months old. :|

Does it convert Eternity map-info as well?

Despite having the same name, ZDoom and Eternity's MAPINFO syntax are completely different.

Actually, Eternity uses EMAPINFO while ZDoom uses ZMAPINFO. So the names aren't the same.

(Yeah I know you can use just plain MAPINFO with ZDoom but if you're using the new ZDoom format you should rather use ZMAPINFO to avoid crossport compatibility issues. Even for a ZDoom-only mod, if only to acquire a good habit.)

So as to ensure cross-port compatibility with lightly modded Eternity maps :)

Two issues here:
1. This was never said to be in the scope for that program. The aim was to convert old format to new; and so mostly to quickly build a corpus of MAPINFOs to test the implementation of the new format.
2. The ZDoom and Eternity MAPINFO feature sets are not homothetic: there are ZDoom MAPINFO functions that you cannot translate to an EMAPINFO function; making the conversion an incomplete and destructive one.

Totally outside the scope of this program. It's merely a syntax converter, not a content converter which would be necessary for handling EMAPINFO. The tool doesn't even check the validity of the converted definitions.
