Hi,

Is there a way which enable to import a text file containing rtf tags  
and show it without those tags ?
For example, here is a snippet for illustration:

requiring, high, dose, IMMUNOSUPPRESSION\par,  
\pard\fi-1440\li1440\tx719\t\
x1440\tx2160\tx2880\tx3600\tx4320\tx5040\tx5760\tx6480\tx7200\tx7920\tx8

I would like to see only:

requiring, high, dose, IMMUNOSUPPRESSION
  -, NECROTIZING, BRONCHOPNEUMONIA, and, BRONCHITIS
  -, Tissue, cultures, positive, for, PSEUDOMONAS, AERUGINOSA
  -, PROSTATIC, ABSCESS
-Residual, MALIGNANT, LYMPHOMA,, leptomeninges,, hypothalamus,,  
hippocampus
-, BIVENTRICULAR, HYPERTROPHY,, HEART, (weight:, 550, grams;, left,  
ventricular, free, wall:, 1.6cm;, right, ventricular, wall:, 0.8cm)
  -, Hepatosplenomegaly, (liver, weight:, 2080, grams,, spleen, weight:,  
450, grams)
  -, Mild, arteriolonephrosclerosis,, bilateral, kidney
CAUSE, OF, DEATH:

I looked and tried the options listed under Import, but with no  
success.  The file itself has comas, semicolons,... in it, so if I  
Import it with Record or Word types, they break the rtf braces and I am  
not able to look for rtf tag patterns - with my newbie knowledge.  I  
have about a thousand such files which need to lose their rtf tags or  
interpret them correctly and show the format accordingly.

  Any good tip ?

Thanks ahead,
János
