The Paper Tape Project

What is this project about?

Welcome to the Paper Tape Project. The goal of this project is to handle paper tapes handy with today's computers. Therefore we have written drivers for punching and reading with external devices, as well as a complete specialized hex editor for paper tape binary files. This project has produced a lot of tools, partly high quality, partly quick & dirty. It's an open source project – you can get the complete results, every single source file, as well as compiled binaries for Microsoft Windows and Linux. The development proceeds mainly at linux workstations, thanks to their great and powerful Unix shells.

I'm about to switch to HTML files for documentation, but there still some README.txt files flying around:
