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.

  • Thanks for the excellent code

    Thank you to Sendil Rajkumar for the excellent RTF-to-text code, and to Gernot Schachner for the additional correction to the code. It is now indeed "many moons" since the code was first published, but it did exactly what I needed for a project I was just working on. And thanks to CodeGuru for making lots of "old" code still available for use even many years later. :-)

    Desparately seeking an answer. Thanks.

  • Bug in the funcion ecRtfParse(FILE * fp )

    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;
    }
