I thought that auto-incremement on characters would following the ASCII table. But, ord("0") is 48
and ord("1") is 49. ord("9") is 57 and chr(58) is ':'. Could someone explain what I'm not seeing?
The magical auto-increment does not use the whole ASCII
table. It is limited to the 10 numbers, the 26 upper-case
letters, and the 26 lower-case letters.
said in the Camel book (page 91), the string must match
That is, you can auto-increment file or
file01, but not file01a.
Anyhow, you cannot get
a : as the result of auto-increment, magical or not.
