I'm looking for a perl example, how to strip off binary content from strings that normaly should be 100.000% ASCII.
Something like this, but as "real working"
$if_descr =~ s/\w+\W$//; # try to strip off Escape Characters in content
Thats because we propagate nedi content into nagios and some exotic boxes, e.g. Avocent, can contain (yes very seldom, but it happen in some environments) coincidentally binary content in interface description & aliases, names and so on, that will cause syntax errors in nagios configuration finaly if you do such things.
thx for feedback in advance
