I believe jr is correct.
POV-RAY can read in the ASCII STL file, and write out the data to a binary STL.
As I have investigated doing this not long ago, the real PITA here is trying to
parse and process the ASCII in POV-RAY.
What _I_ wound up doing was just using a LibreOffice spreadsheet to go from
ASCII STL to a POV-RAY mesh object. If that initial pre-processing step in the
workflow isn't a big deal, then you could do the same to format your ASCII STL
data, and then use POV-RAY to read in and write out a binary STL file.
