zip1 Bi-directional File Reader

Bi-directional File Reader by Lambert Klein (1989) - There are a lot of sequential file readers for the Commodore 64, but this is the first one I can recall that let's you go back and forth in a document while you're reading it.  Since the program is pretty small, you should be able to read some really big documents.  Plus, you can send the file to your printer and define how many columns wide you want to print.

zip10 File-Survey 2.7

File-Survey 2.7 by Reudiger Khoel (Willcox, 1998) is one of the best .SEQ (and also .PRG and Binary) file viewers I've run across.  Not only does this view files with the option to print, it also supports viewing (and printing) in 40 or 80 columns.  On top of that, it supports most RAM expansions and can use up to the max of 16MB.

This disk image is mainly German, but there is an English version of File-Survey along with an English translation of the docs.  I also need to give credit for this find to Baracuda because it was on a disk image he sent over.

zip27 Velveeta

Velveeta by Kevin Hisel - Here's another utility that could be pretty handy, especially when you want to print out some documentation you found in a sequential (SEQ) file on some random disk, but it was formatted for 40 columns (because that's all our humble C64 has).  Not only can you strip carriage returns, you can also get rid of extra spacing while still honoring the traditional 2 spaces after a . (period). Additionally, it can also strip out non-text characters, so it might be helpful in converting a text file from some other word processor that embedded a bunch of control characters.  Although this utility can process PRG and USR files, I really can't see the usefulness in that, so I'm putting it in the Seq File Tools area. See the screen shots to read the built-in help.
