ASF:Attribute Sensitive Text Retrieving Tool

I have been making several text retrieving tools, i.e. KKC, Corpus Wizard. There was a preposition that there are no attributes in text files, no italics, no bold, no underlines. Now there are many, many, many files which contains attributes, HTML, RTF, TeX, etc.

This is the utility which uses these attributes.

DOS version : MS-DOS / PC-DOS Generic(preferrably 3.x or later)
OS/2 version : OS/2 Warp or later
Windows version : Windows3.1+Win32s(1.15 or later), Windows95 or later, WindowsNT
DOS and OS/2 versions are CUI utility. The following is th euage of these two versions. Windows version is GUI application. Functions are the same.
