DIFferisifier is a simple utility, which makes conversion of text data in HyperCard, MetaCard and Revolution stacks as easy as possible. The DIF and Merge file formats that are created by DIFfersifier can be imported by most, if not all, well-known database applications. A tab-delimited text format is also available, enhancing flexibility for those who are creating their own database software. DIFfersifier can also create HTML tables.

The conversion process only takes a few steps. After starting DIFferisifier, a small window appears. Click the Select Stack button and open a HyperCard, MetaCard or Revolution stack. Choose a file format and a background or group and press enter. After a few seconds, you are asked to give your new file a name and save it in the appropriate folder.

Advantages of DIFfersifier are: you don't have to write your own script for text export; field names keep preserved if the DIF or Merge formats are chosen; and return characters can be automatically replaced by vertical tabs to make sure that e.g. FileMaker keeps together text that belongs in a single field. Please note that DIFfersifier assumes that stacks have a proper design. Data in card fields are ignored.
