If the file is in WP format, Reformat won't be able to read it. Some way
you have to get it either into WP and save it as ASCII text, or find a
conversion utility from WP to ASCII. If you get it into WP, you can simply
add the two periods at the end of the last line of the header before saving
the file as ASCII: if you use a conversion utility, you can use any editor
available in your mainframe to add the periods.

No definition for 'Finland'. Maybe you mean: 1. inland
