Have you ever seen this on the USENET:
blah "blah" blah
Sick of it ? I am and HTML code doesn't belong on the Usenet.. HTML code
is for WEB! (try tell that to a PeCe/Netscape user.. :-/ ).
If you use Thor 2.2+ this package is ideal for you:
When you see a HTML posting on the Usenet you can press a function key,
the package will then convert the HTML MAIL to non-html content, replace
the current message in the window with a readable text, then optionally
add an event to Thor which makes a follow-up to the author of the html
posting which tells him/her to stop using html code on the usenet.
The only requirement is that the converter finds a tag in the
Besides, the binary is quite fast stripping html tags and converting
entities to ISO (it covers most entities). It uses less than 4 seconds on
a heavy-html-use 1.1 meg HTML file (less than 2 seconds on stripping, the
rest on converting). This is on a Amiga 4000/030/25/cache. On smaller
files like 21 kb it uses < 0.4 second (the small difference (1MB/20KB
time) is due to cache). Some percent goes to reading/writing the file.
You can use the binary as you want, configure it to your favourite system,
or just use the binary as a standalone tool.
The package is PUBLIC DOMAIN and you will find assembler source to the
converter program in the archive. Just remember to credit me if you change
or use the source for your own programs :^)
