I just realized this is a much bigger problem than I thought. This makes
the output of the log, for any given files, nearly unusable. And it takes
an unbelieveable amount of time to generate a full log dump.

Does anyone have a solution? A handy script or app which reads in the
records, parses them in a friendly way, and writes them back out would be a
good start for me. I could modify that to do what I want if anyone knew of
a tool which was similar.

Thanks for any advice.
