RE: FW: [Plugins-writers] how to convert binary file to text file ?

I can use IISDUMP to dump metabases to XML  file and then use
smb_file_read( ) to do the pattern match test.
I just desire to know is it possible to write a plugin that can covert
metabase.ini  to text file directly ?
If yes , that would be a wonderful thing.

How would you do this generally, I mean, outside of a plugin? Is there
an algorithm that doesn't involve using MetaEdit?
