in thread scoping problem?

Not sure what to say about being coy with the code -- what I've posted is exactly what I'm running.

As for the data, I've been cutting-and-pasting directly from the file I'm working with.

In any event, perhaps choroba is right that there are non-printable characters in the file. How would I go about figuring that out?

Slightly related idea: could something wierd about the encoding of the text file be going on?

Again, thanks to all of you for your help

    On linux, you can run od, hd or hexdump on your data to see. I prefer flags -tx1c for od and -C for hexdump. On Windows, you can write a Perl script to print it out:
    while (<>) { printf q/%x /, $_ for map ord, split //; print "\n"; }

      On winows, either install od ( , , mingw... ) or use Data::Dump, don't write a script like that (too many holes)
