AdShield Utilities

AdShield Utilities v. 0.01 19-Feb-2003 (9k)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Program : AdShield Utilities
 Purpose : Utilities for processing AdShield block list (.abl) files
 Author  : (C) Jon Ripley, 2003
 Version : 0.01 (19th February 2003)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AdShield, the freeware banner ad blocker available for the Windows operating
system, maintains a list of all blocked sites in a file called 'AdShield.abl'
in the main program directory.


This file is not human-readable and cannot be easily edited in a text editor,
these two utilities will allow you to convert the block list file into a text
file so that it may be viewed/sorted/edited and then convert that text file
back into the format that AdShield expects.
