python script I wrote that prints out the (parsed) edit stream:

A question from an IRC/wikipedia newbie.
I've been experimenting with processing pubmsg events in
(thanks for the channel btw) and
have been noticing some control characters that I wasn't expecting to
see in the message content. I've attached a raw line form the channel,
where you should be able to see an 0x03 byte (ctrl-c) at position 60.
There are several others scattered throughout the line followed by
integers. Is this a character encoding of some kind that I need to
decode, or some artifact of the IRC protocol that I need to handle?
Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated!
They are color codes, you could simply strip them, but rather you should
parse them, since they are really handy for splitting the fields.
