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.

Furthermore, as said in the Camel book (page 91), the string must match /[a-zA-Z]*[0-9]*$/. 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.

    [stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
    [stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
    Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
    [thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
    [perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
    [thezip]: Me, not as much.
    [perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
    [stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
