I am needing to convert a file exported from DB2 into a text based ascii file. I don't care what the delimiter or format once it gets out of .ixf format.
|Answer: How do I convert a DB2 .ixf file to an ascii delimited file?|

I couldn't find anything that you can immediately use neither on google nor on CPAN. However, I did find the actual file format description, which you
can get here.
Do you have access to the database from which the extract file
was created? If so, you may consider using DBD::DB2 and DBI to extract the
needed data yourself and then store it in whatever format you like.
Or you can write a module for parsing IXF files and submit it to CPAN. :)
