ansi2txt - ansi to plain text converter
can be used to convert text containing ANSI color codes (such as
MUD logs, text processed by syntax highlighters, colorgcc, colordiff, ccze,
loco, etc) into plain ASCII text. It works as a filter, reading from stdin,
removing all ANSI codes and sending the output to stdout.
All ANSI codes are simply ignored, including all cursor positioning ones.
Sometimes this is what you want, sometimes it isn't.
