How to Extract Queries from Data Flows without the formatted text?

I was wondering if there was any way to extract queries used for data flows from PowerBI without keeping the formatted text that is pasted on there.   When I try to simply copy and paste the query from the dataflow there are all different sorts of "#lf"s for example that are inherent to the format.   Any way to extract just the raw queries?

Use the Scanner API.  Or write a small utility that replaces the #lf and #tab etc.
