I think what has been proposed before was to use %xlate to change everything to one particular bad character, and then %scanrpl to swap them all out.
So build a string with hex 00-39 and %xlate to for example x'39' Then %scanrpl x'39' to a space.

Well, so that’s only one fast scan& replace instead of a slow do 1-char at a time loop

But the user doesn't know what bytes below x'40' are present, just that x'12' is currently being encountered.
