Re: Non displayable characters in a PF



fixed

Surely that is 'C C'. Why would you see x'34'? RPG, as an example, is only going to see C3, 40, 40, C3 as you look at each character in the string...

If I had :

C34040C3

How do I detect that I have C3 40 40 C3 and there's no 34 in there?

The characters are < x'40' (blank). You'll have to scan
through the string and replace anything < x'40' with x'40'..

Thanks,

Sorry if I wasn't clear : we don't want user pasting this
kind of thing but presumably we can't prevent it unless it
can be detected. We have only discovered the characters when
the contents of the PF were written out to XML files. This
caused an error in the application treating the XML.
