In case there are WordStar users on this list, you should know that 
all DOS versions of WordStar work perfectly using Dosemu on Linux 
systems. And, Rein Klazes produced patches so that WordStar for 
Windows works under Wine. WordStar (all versions after WordStar 4) 
included filters for converting to ASCII as well as a wide variety of 
other formats. In fact WordStar DOS in nondocument mode is an ASCII 
text editor.

However, if all you have are WordStar DOS files and no copy of 
WordStar, then using this converter would be good. But if you still 
have your copy of WordStar, you can just go ahead and use it on a 
Linux system.
