in thread Detect STX and ETX hex in received string

This regex would not match anything unless an ETX was found, while the poster wanted to stop reading as soon as 80 bytes were found.

(Apologies; originally this comment contained a typo such that it made no sense)

    I'd say that's a matter of interpretation. I did consider the situation where no ETX existed; however, jagexCoder wrote "... packets of interest that are within STX and ETX endings.". Accordingly, I coded for STX and ETX to always be present. Perhaps wait for the OP to clarify this.

    [Aside: You appear to have removed the original typo, so I don't know what you're apologising for. Regardless, I accept your apology. :-) ]

    Update: Oh dear! Having posted this, I see I've also introduced a typo such that it made no sense.
    s/Perhaps wait for to OP can clarify this./Perhaps wait for the OP to clarify this./

      Fair enough, I suppose it is a matter of interpretation.
