No - not a tall order at all. But I'm not sure I understand the
problem: is it just that you don't have the table to map the values ?

If that's it, then get it from .

If you want just one file converted, I'd be happy to do it for you.
I don't have a tool available that runs on any system you are likely
to be using, but it's pretty trivial to write one in your
favorite language given the mapping table.
