I have some old text files from the days before WYSIWYG, using an old script language from IBM.  It looks like this:

.rf can
.ll 6.0i
.cl 6.0i
.DF A37 TYPE(LETTER GOTHIC 09 BOLD NORMAL) CODEPAGE T1D0BASE
.bf a37
.hy off
.dc cont +
.ti › 05
.tm 1i
.bm 1i
.dc word -
.fo left
.tb 2 21 31 41 61
.***********************************************************************
.rh can
.rh on
.ce ENTRANCE
.sp
.rh off
.pa
.bx 1 72
.in +2
.ir +2

I would love to be able to format that somewhere, somehow, so I could copy/paste the result into MSWord, or even into a simple text file.

Unfortunately, I don't even remember the name of the language and I haven't been able to find it via simple searching.

Does anyone have an idea how to do this without having to go through several long files and remove/convert each line?

Possibly IBM GML or Bookmaster or Script.  Can't find anything conclusive.

This company http://www.tagwrite.com/docs/bookmaster_dcf.pdf offers a conversion package but i suspect it might be pricey.

IBM offers a util http://www.vm.ibm.com/download/packages/descript.cgi?B2H to convert to HTML which in turn you could convert to RTF or Word.  Requires REXX installed on your system but they offer links to download packages which you can run on your PC.
