I need to extract the user entered text from RTF files held within the IFS. Microsoft have a quaint 'specification' which incorporates several 'standards' for the syntax of control words.

Does anyone have any RTF reading code that will run on an IBM i? - doesn't need to produce a print, or do anything but strip out the RTF control groups and keywords.

Thanks

    I haven't done anything with it, but How to Write an RTF Reader provides source (in C) for a RTF reader. It could be more or less converted to ILE RPG or COBOL if C isn't appropriate. It seems like as good of a starting point as anything else. Tom
