Thanks, Joe.

There is some sort of header of approximately a couple hundred chars
that is mostly unreadable except for the occasional printable character
that shows up, such as a K or a <.

Following the "header", the "report" part looks pretty good, but there
seems to be some sort of marker before each text field. Most of them are
left braces "{" but sometimes it is a left brace + another character
such as {/ or {". Almost like the left braces could be a tab.

I cannot tell what the data is in hex because I don't know enough Java
to make it print the data in hex.

Hi Marty!

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