Hi Marty!

Is the "junk" hex data or text? It's been a little while since I looked at
the data in depth, but it might be the printer control information (space
and skip) from the file. I'll check my code.


From: Urbanek, Marty

Based on code from the java400-l archives, I've been trying to read a
spool file using Java with the Java Toolbox. The following code works,
but there is a lot of "junk" mixed in with the report text. I'm pretty
sure this "junk" is printer control info. How do I eliminate it or parse
it so I will be left with only the human-readable text?
