  Other than writing your own script several of the em image analysis 
packages (e.g. spider, situs, suprim) have routines to convert between 
varius file formts including ASCII. The Situs package 
(http://situs.biomachina.org/fguide.html#map2map) uses ASCII files and 
has a routine to convert MRC type files to situs (map2map).
