No, you're correct, I only need the conversion to go one-way. The cron job creates complex URLs
a mile long. The lookup file it creates has this format:
I download the cron lookup file early after startup. When I need to get a file from the server,
I replace spaces with underscores in the name string and add the extension. Then I use
lineoffset to find the file in a list of hundreds and extract its URL to retrieve the stack.
