The Mac OS9 Finder and most OS 9 applications (and ASIP file servers) have a maximum character limitation of 31 for either file or folder names. Mac OSX allow much longer file names than does Mac OS9.
At best these longer file or folder names get truncated with names ending in what is "gibberish". At worst, when attempting to copy a folder containing a few of these files with longer names, the copy will be prevented thereby requiring the user to locate the problematic files. In folders with many files this can become a time consuming task.
This simple drop application was created to take those OSX "unfriendly" long names and truncate them, including and respecting any file extension, to the 31 characters that OS9 accepts. In addition, to avoid name conflicts, the program will uniquely number each file or folder before the extension up to a maximum of 999.
Just drop the folder or the files on top of the application and the rest is handled automatically. You can then be assured of no random names being generated and all files uniquely named and numbered as well.
If you have hundreds files, the process can take a bit of time and as long as the application is running (check your DOCK) it is still doing its job although you may have full control of your mouse.
If there are any errors, a log file will be created on your desktop detailing the problem.

Old-time Mac users will remember the Desktop Accessory called Key Caps. Key Caps made it very simple to look up how to get your keyboard to input special characters. Apple dropped Key Caps in Mac OS X 10.2. So, I made Key Viewer. Apple still ships the Keyboard Viewer as part of OS X, but without Key Caps, there is not a simple method of invoking it. Key Viewer is simply a wrapper around a script that makes it easy to call up the Keyboard Viewer.
