and Gem is (almost[1]) able to directly read these via the "string" message.
that's all documented for [text3d], and all [text*] objects basically
have the same interface.


[1] if you only use ASCII; if you want to use extended characters, you
have to convert the UTF-8 bytes that you get out from [binfile] into
Unicode-codepoint numbers. there's an abstraction somewhere in
iem/unicode/ that does just that.
i seem to remember that something like this was on the list just recently...
