file-transfer program

   An application used to move a file from a computer of one type to a computer of another type. The file format itself may also be changed during this transfer.
   Many of the applications that change a Macintosh file into a PC-compatible file, or vice versa, consist of two programs running simultaneously on two physically connected computers. MacLink Plus from Data Viz and LapLink Mac from Traveling Software are two file-transfer programs that also offer a wide variety of popular file-format conversions.
