dsread (http://www.oview.co.uk/dsread) was updated yesterday, to include
various new features as suggested here and elsewhere.  Of particular
interest might be:

- you can now use the /c and /v options together to get dataset contents in
CSV format for easier importing;

- there is now a /l option for lossless representation of numerics in the
output.  Numerics will appear as (eg) '0x000000000000f03f' giving the exact
hex value of each of the eight bytes making up the IEEE float value.

Please continue to report bugs or feature requests here or on the above web
