Strip RTF tags

These four files will help you to convert the RTF contents of a CString to the plain text.

You have to do the following

Include the two header files and two .cpp files in your project and just call the function
convertRTF (CString csInput, CString & csout);
by passing the fist CString with the RTF content and get the output form the second parameter.

Due to the time constraint , I couldn't write the functions as fully object oriented. If some one feels that can be changed to the object orientated style it is welcome.

    The calculation of the decimal number from the hexadecimal number in the function ecRtfParse(FILE * fp ) is wrong!You must add 10 if the character is 'a' to 'f' or 'A' to 'F', see the code below!

    if (islower(ch))
    {
    if (ch < 'a' || ch > 'f')
    return ecInvalidHex;
    // old code !! b += (char) ch - 'a';
    b += (char) ch - 'a' + 10;
    }
    else
    {
    if (ch < 'A' || ch > 'F')
    return ecInvalidHex;
    // old code !! b += (char) ch - 'A';
    b += (char) ch - 'A' + 10;
    }
