E-tomo is designed to make possible or otherwise facilitate Japanese e-mail. Specifically, it decodes garbage like the following for you.


Japanese text send over the Internet or other networks is known to get corrupted sometimes. There are various corruption patterns. E-tomo can detect a pattern of corruption and decode text accordingly.


After you have downloaded E-tomo (see below for how to do this), first un-binhex it using software like Binhex, StuffIt! and Compact Pro. The resulting file is a self-dearchiving file, so just double-click on it and extract the content. (If your Web browser is set up to work with such software as mentioned above, dearchiving will happen automatically.) The end result is a folder called "E-tomo v.1.0" or "E-tomo v.2.0". There is an MS-Word file called "E-tomo manual", which will give you further instructions.

I hope you'll find E-tomo useful. Give me mail in Japanese!
