GUI: s2s.exe ----------------------------------------------- Engine: Script2Script.dll The ground level, back-end, of all Converters is Script2Script.dll. The upper level Converters are scripts, text files. Additional module is s2s.exe, which is GUI to the Engine. As of March 2004, Engine Revision 188.8.131.52 is in use since September 13, 2003, and previous 184.108.40.206b has been released July 4, 2003.
Both updates were heavily used, and no significant unfixed bugs in Engine are known. Thus, Engine reliability should be well established. In addition, the Engine is much simplier in sintax and code then upper level scripts, so there is less space for errors. Upper level Converters are used inside the company, 'in-house'. This Converters, GUI, and entire Package Documentation are not well-edited for public release.
