thank you for your help and for creating an easy and fast program for generating .item files !
It will be a big help for me ! The only problem about it is that it process just files with .tif extension.
I tried to process .gif and .jpg, but then hhmmssn.item wasn't created. Please would it be possible to make the
program work with other extensions ? Maybe the UTF-8 support would be also nice, but i think it not really necessary.
Again, BIG THANKS FOR YOUR WORK ! It will save time to many people !
