using screen logs

I use screen to log sessions where I patch Debian servers.  Screen
captures ANSI control codes (like positioning and color changes), which
is probably appropriate, however, I want a version of the logs without
those codes so that I can open it in a text editor.  I've been told that
a little perl could help, been directed to 'script', both of which don't
seem to do the trick that I want.  For the perl solution, I need to know
too much about the ANSI codes that I want to replace.  Script just
dumps... there doesn't seem to be a good way to capture without the

Screen is a widely used application, and my use to generate logs of my
sessions has got to be a fairly popular function of screen... so what is
everyone else using to make the logs human readable?  ( Ideally, I'd
like something that will reformat the log either to a file or to a pipe.
