>Has anyone made a routine to strip xterm escape codes from a terminal text?
>I'm looking at having to have a close study of the TerminalFilter_VT100.class and try to account for all possible code combinations to strip them.
>I thought before i spent hours doing it i'd ask if anyone already has and could share the code.
>Or if there is already a way either an existing function somewhere or possibly in gb.form.terminal or some other class a function that could do it.
>I'm looking at TerminalFilter_VT100.class and the function OutputTo() looks like it could do it , it seems to do all the right processing but for other reasons. maybe by printing to a stream i could get plain text but i do not know how to do that :(
>Any thoughts/suggestions?
>Many thanks
>All the best
