Supposedly there is, but they are not not very good and hard to find (the websites that have them keep going down)

The best thing to do anyway is to re-code since the languages are so different in how to logically approach solutions.

There are different ways in ASP that are more efficient than doing the same thing in COld Fusion and vice versa...

hi finnstone,
No probs with points but was just wondering, what was not clear in Anandkp and my answer.
I thought, I gave clear answer almost first.

Well I can see why no points went to Pinal since he said the answer was NO and actually there are tools out there - they just keep coming and going and are not very good.

Anadkp's answer should have had the points split since that thread addresses this exact topic ans has links to where tools used to be and also discusses other options.

Thank you mrichmon for your explaination. I always respect you so much. You have always corrected me.
If this is the case, I will be happy to know the names of the tools, which have come and go.
Thank you again for your notes.

Please see one example in the link posted by anadkp.

There are other found by a google search.

I personally don't use any because as I mentioned they do not work very well and you will have better and more efficient code if you do it by hand.

hi mrichmon,
thank you again, I am asking this question as I just want to learn the things, which I do not know.
Also, I again think my answer is totally valid in the context the question is asked. There are no tools, which can also convert them to CFC as well as CFM.
I am asking this just to know the more, please do not take it otherwise.
Regards,

From TacoBell's comment in the other thread that anandkp mentioned :
http://forums.aspfree.com/archive/t-10376

If you take the time to do a google search with "asp conversion tool cold fusion" you will see over 18,900 resulsts.

It is not worth my time to look any further than that since I don't use them as all that I tried I did not like.  If you would like to learn more then you can look into them.

thank you mrichmon,
All the info you provided is useful for sure. Many thanks for that.
I thought, as you had time to say my answer is not correct, I guessed that you might have time to explain also why!
Well, I apologize if I have wasted your time in any sense. I will definetly look into that area. I

I will still say that there is not a single tool which can convert ASP into " cfm doc and also a cfc doc".

I sincerly aplogize if I have said something which is not apropriate. I just care that if I am wrong, I will learn more. If I am correct, that increase my confidence towards the subject area.
Many thanks,
Regards,

I disagree.

As I said there are many tools available.

Here is one :

http://www.cfm2asp.com/index.asp

This one even has a free downloadable trial.

There is another in the link to the question that anadkp posted.

There are many more by searching Google as I stated above.

So PinalDave's answer of "there is no tool for this purpose" is just plain WRONG.

Whoops - that one does the reverse conversion.  But my links from above to the correct conversion.

Obviously there are tools to do conversions in both directions.....

Whether or not you use them is a totally different question....

hello mrichmon,
As usual. first of all let me thank you for all the information you are providing. They are good ones.
Second, I will request you to read the question again...
"cfm doc and also a cfc doc".... i think and am sure there is no tool which does "and also CFC" conversion.

I have also requested you to post them, if there are any available but you did not had time to do that before. If it is worth your time now, would you please post them. I am very much interested. As you have said on the top, I have done googling also but could not find any.

Please do not waste time if you think it is not worth. I do not want to do anything which makes you not happy as I have lots of respect for you.

Again, I disagree with you. Accept my polite apology.

Regards,
---Pinal

Personally I do not care if you give points to Pinaldave - I just don't want people to think that there are no solutions out there when there are.  As mentioned, they come and go, but they do exist.  You just have to search for them.

But if you feel that the answer of "there is no such tool" should exist, then by all means change the points... as I said, points make no difference to me.

neither to me. I never have been in argument with anybody.
I think, when there is no solution which is stable, one should not spend their time in that direction and that will be right and practicle answer.
Regarding points, I do not care also.
I know that you are clean up volunteer for ColdFusion and have done always justice in the matter. I have always agreed with you, whatever you made decision. I might have opinion at that time but you have always done what is correct. I never brought any matter in community before, as I let the points go.
I will again say, forget the points they are just motivation for participation. The imp thing is being correct and being practicle.
As both of us know that we are not going to use that tool, only thing which matters is what is correct and truth and helpful for future members who will search the database.
Who ever is correct, both of us have faith towards community, that is most important.
With my regards and respect,
---Pinal

The most important thing is that when the answer was accepted that time there was not enough information in this direction.
Atleast after all discussion atleast in future , when anybody searches the database, they will get enough information to make decision.
