    Create a version of truncstr() that returns the truncated string

    Log Message:
    Created convert_ansi() which is kind of a minimal version of ANS2ASC

    It Ctrl-A encodes a possibly ANSI-encoded string, supporting on color/attribute sequences and stripping all others.

    Modified Files:
    src/sbbs3/str_util.c str_util.h
    Log Message:
    Allow '*' pattern character to be used mid-string (not just beg or end)

    Previously, the '*' matching pattern character could only be used as the beginning or ending character of a pattern string; for any other use, it was treated just as any other exact-match character.

    Now, you can have exact-match characters on both the left and right sides of the '*', so pattern matching like the following is possible:

    <*@gmail.com>
    digital*man

    Multiple '*'s are still not treated special (only the first/left-most '*" is), so, for example, "*blah*" will not likely produce the desired matching effect (use "blah~" instead for this case).

    Log Message:
    Add strip_cp437_graphics() and have strip_ctrl() remove DEL chars too

    strip_cp437_graphics() is like strip_exascii(), except it'll leave the foreign language characters and math symbols intact (removing just the common "block" and "line-drawing" characters).

    DEL (0x7F) is a control character too, so have strip_ctrl() remove it.
