I use a binary file -> .WAV file conversion program written in C, with
source code included, absolute freeware, and already successfully ported
to PC, Amiga, and Linux. It lays down a header specific to an Atari
2600 cassette add-on, and it doesn't reverse the conversion, but
extending/genercizing it shouldn't be a lifelong project. Let me know
if your interested and I'll send it to you.
