Has anyone written or heard of a GAC to PAW converter being available?

Do you have file format documentation? If so, then there is possibility
that such a converter may be written, if it is enough compatible. (Some
game engines work differently and so a conversion won't work so well; I
do not know whether or not this is the case for GAC->PAW.)

I do have the manuals for GAC. UNGAC by John Elliott gets the info from an SNA snapshot to make the conversion easier.

I am thinking of being able to input ungac output into WinPaw (www.winpaw.com) and didn't want to write the convertor if someone already had one. If it isn't too hard to do, it'll be in the next release of WinPaw. GAC is 3rd in the number of Adventure Writer games written for the Spectrum, Quill & Paw are 1st and 2nd

I realize it has been a good while since the last release of WinPaw, but I am working on it and getting there. I am expecting to include a couple of UnQuilled & UnPawed games (& maybe UNGACed) for anyone who gets the next version & gets the new passwords for their account.
