Removing non-printing characters ...

Folks ... I have a pipe-delimited ASCII text file with a lot of
different non-printing characters. Rather than try and figure out all
the non-printing characters that exist in this 17+ million record
database, I was hoping someone might have already written a script
they'd be willing to share that would remove all non-printing
characters from an ASCII file?

Thanks,

This isn't really an MSSQL question, so you'll probably get a better answer
in a forum for whatever language you usually use for tasks like this - Perl,
C#, VB etc.
