Is there a tool that will display the raw rtf to me as text instead of formatted data?

So I see...

{\rtf1\an...some text \b


some text

Problem: One of our custom programs creates RTF. I have this RTF in hand. The RTF that I create does not match the way final output looks in the UI. I want to copy the RTF out of the UI and compare it in raw form to the RTF that I created in my code.

I want to see if other parts of the program are modifying my RTF.

Why not simply open it in notepad? –  Martheen Cahya Paulo Jun 20 '12 at 13:50
@MartheenCahyaPaulo - See question update. –  P.Brian.Mackey Jun 20 '12 at 13:58
I recently looked into how to remove RTF from a file, and I ended up with that it's possible with a .Net application. There's no regex which can do this :-( –  Devator Jun 20 '12 at 14:02
If you have access to the source code, you should be able to simply save the RTF as a file. Which make this questions belongs to stackoverflow –  Martheen Cahya Paulo Jun 20 '12 at 14:03
