Hello.

I was working on NCR Century 8200 in France in the 70's.

At this time, the names of the files in the directory disc under Imos II or III was coded on four bytes in Base 40 I think.
I don't remember the method to convert it in Alphanumeric characters.

If someone could help me, It will be awsome.

Regards
