The object model is fairly large, and certainly not
intuitive. It is also an API that was not primarily
targeted at weekend-programmers that have a day
job.

You will not always find what you're looking for
without utilizing the tools available (for example,
the Search function of the object browser).

Open the object browser, and in the search box
enter "Convert" and click the search button. You'll
find plenty of results, but what you are looking for
is there in the result list.

That's where the 'intuitive' part comes in.

I've found that knowing what tools I have, and
how use them helps immensely when it comes to
finding answers.

Paul, thanks for pointing out the object browser, I hadn't understood that.
I'm sure I'll use it a lot. But I fear that "intuitive" is in the eye of
the beholder. Most of what I see in the object browser looks pretty
baffling. I should have learned this stuff before writing 1800 lines of an
AutoCAD-based program in VB.NET, but I seem to learn more when I'm doing.

Use the 'Object Browser'. You can filter your search just on the
Acad Libraries. Then search on what you're looking for. In this
case searching for 'Converter' would have given you the answer.
The nice thing is the Libraries are named intuitively in most cases.

Randy,
Download the ObjectARX SDK. I put a shortcut to the docs right on my
desktop.

Thanks for the tip, Bobby. I pored over the ObjectARX SDK docs before I
started this thread, but I could not find anything therein to help me. Did
I overlook something?
