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

    coy, esp. WordNet (r) 2.0, sense 2: "showing marked and often playful or irritating evasiveness or reluctance to make a definite or committing statement".

    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)
