    why? Guest

    What do you mean?


    Decoding? If you can see it has quotation marks in it, then it's
    decoded, you are vieweing it somehow.

    You haven't posted an example ot the file data.

    If it's "data","data" then any spreadsheet text to cols / load csv file.

    Depends what you want to do with it.

    You didn't say a lot.

    Me, I use Perl a lot to play with data files.

    OK, I get it.

    We are supposed to figger out what you really mean, rewrite the
    question, and then answer the right question. That seems like a
    perfectly reasonable request.


    Suppose the question were actually, "How can you reformat the text from
    a newsgroup message which contains both EOL returns and quote/citation

    My answer would be, I use the now shareware app TextCleanup.

    There was recently a thread here on that topic, but unfortunately the
    once great googlegroups search engine has fallen onto hard times, so I
    can't paste in a GG link.

    The topic thread is:

    It's too bad that GG search has become a low priority to Google the
    corporate cash hog.
