How to tell SED to emit output in 8-bit ASCII only?
I am sure there are better places/forums to ask the below question, but I didn't find any. If you know a better place please advise!

I have to mangle some "plain ASCII" text file (i.e. 8 bits/characters where the text DOES contain characters like Umlauts and accented characters from the upper 7-bits range, i.e. with hex codes in [128..254]).
For this I am trying to use SED which I downloaded as part of cygwin package. Alas, SED emits the result using Unicode-16 characters (i.e. 16 bits/characters), which the program for which the output is intended can't handle.
Can one tell SED to NOT emit Unicode-16 characters but force it to emit Unicode-8 only?

Michael

It most certainly does NOT belong in a group for discussing Vista
issues.

I know, but since I expected to find here are all the file(-mangling) and sys-admin gurus I hoped, that one of them might know me a pointer...

Do you by chance also have a news server handy that features that NG?
