Convert ELD File to Text...Possible?

If I have several TradeStation ELD files and would like to read them as a plain text file, is this possible? Clearly I am not a TS user.

Online there were several open source programs that I cam across that made a conversion of ELD to text file, but most of them were dead ends.

An old post on the board mentioned using a MultiCharts trial and supposedly they have an editor that allows you to see TS code...I am not sure if this is a viable option.

Is there any recommendations on how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

you won't get the source code by opening the file with a text editor, that's why you'd need to use a program capable of understanding EasyLanguage. Besides Tradestation, using Multicharts might work for you.
