Perl module to convert rich text to ASCII

Posted on 2008-11-06

I am writing  a perl program to extract some data which is in RTF format from MS SQL database.  Before passing it to an application, I need to convert rich text to ASCII since the application can not handle RTF.
I searched CPAN but found no module that does this.  

Any idea?

    Thanks!  :-)  
    Now it seems so obvious.  I probably used different word to serach (ascii, rich text etc...).  It didn't turn up.
