NAME

yodlstriproff - strip ASCII control characters

SYNOPSIS

command | yodlstriproff > outputfile

DESCRIPTION

The yodlstriproff program is a very simple tool to strip ASCII control characters off a stream, so that only `bare' ASCII is left. The stripped control sequences are ^H (backspace) followed by any character; this mechanism is used to underline or boldface text on terminals that support it.

yodlstriproff is typically used with the Yodl converters yodl2msless and yodl2manless.
