260Re: [NTS] The ANSI 26 character
- Dec 21, 2003Hi Alan,
Thanks for posting your experience, was wondering if you'd tried it.

That sounds really strange Alan, unless you had a missing semicolon
or something. I just cut and pasted from my prior email to a new
notetab file and ran your
(incl new line after the 222)
and the output is shown after the end of this message.
Is the StdError.err have a clue or is it missing as well? The posted
script of mine that included use strict and use warnings does give a
warning in Stderror.err for me, looks like this:
Argument "" isn't numeric in addition (+) at D:\PROGRA~1\NOTETA~2
\Scripts\figures3.pl line 31, <> line 4.
My memory is failing badly too, but there was a reason I used the chr
(26) instead of escaping the box character. I think it was not just
because it wouldn't show up on Yahoo or in email. The character as I
recall, is the same as a Ctrl+Z, which in Dos/Windows has always
meant "end of file". So if you substituted the actual character
(even escaped) in your script, it could lead to unexpected results
if your command interpreter redefines it to mean "end of file" <g>
Output of script using the data above:
This way (using while) needs new lines
(not sure why? could just add \n's)
This way (using foreach) doesn't need new lines
