TPIPE /simple=4

Hello,

when converting old DOS (OEM-charset) to ANSI with TPIPE /simple=4
I noticed that the EOL chars (CR LF) are replaced by '?'.

Applying the /simple=3 filter replaces every char with binary zero.
This will show it:
Code:
echo "Hallo, dies ist überhaupt nicht schön" | tpipe /simple=3 | view
Version: TCC 27.00.18

With simple=3, TCC just gets lost.

Code:
v:\> echo xxx | tpipe /simple=3
tpiEA
v:\> echo xxxxxx | tpipe /simple=3
Installe
v:\> echo xxxxxxxxx | tpipe /simple=3
Installer I
v:\> echo xxxxxxxxxxxx | tpipe /simple=3

v:\> echo xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx | tpipe /simple=3
2021-02-11 12:31:
v:\> echo xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx | tpipe /simple=3
????????????????????

FWIW Data Mystic also has a Facebook (ptui) page DataMystic. It doesn't have a lot of traffic but there was post by Data Mystic on April 20 to announce the release of TextPipe Pro 11.8.

Any other TPIPE problems? I do recall problems converting a PDF to TXT and also this thread is titled /Simple=4 but the content is /Simple=3 ? Was there a problem with /Simple=4 or just a typo?
