Hex value 1A terminates <>by tekkie (Beadle)
|on Jan 13, 2003 at 14:09 UTC ( #226459=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml )||Need Help??|
tekkie has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Consider the code:
Where 'test.txt' resembles:
And where <SUB> is the SUBstitute character (Dec 26 Hex 1A Oct 032)
When running on WinNT 4.0 with ActivePerl build 631 the above code prints 4 when the SUB is there, and 9 if that line is left blank.
Has anyone encountered this problem before?
Is there a way to get the <> operator to read past the SUB char?
Edit by Petruchio Thu Jan 16 18:05:09 UTC 2003 - The ^Z character was causing trouble for certain browsers. It was replaced in two places with the string <SUB>, as chosen by the author.
