Newbie question

 [1/9] from: kpeters-vu::ware::com at: 13-Nov-2005 11:43

Hi list ~ much to my surprise I have a hard time finding a way to test for the existence of a word (so that I won't load a code file again)... WORD? looked really promising until I tried it... The code files is not under my control, so I cannot just set a certain word to a certain value or such. Thanks for any help, Kai

You mean something like: value? 'a-word ? -L

I'm having difficulties emailing an ntbackup log. Here is what I receive. File: //Documents and Settings/Inver/Local Settings/Application Data/Microsoft/Windows NT/NTBackup/data/backup02.log =FF=FEB Below is what I should be receiving.

Of course the email stripped the high ascii characters changing them to =FF=FEB Riccay

Hi Riccay, I would check what it is that you are sending before you send it. Try insert a PROBE just before your REFORM, eg: send you-email probe reform [... That should narrow it down a bit. But I was unable to reproduce the problem. Maybe something weird is happening with the email server? What happens if you change the body text to something simpler ? Anton.

Thanks for the suggestions Anton.

Non backup log text files work fine. I'm going to try it on a different PC since you couldn't recreate the problem. Email client is Outlook 2003 running on Win XP sp2.

Hmm.... Perhaps it's returning Unicode?

Hi Riccay, RS> When I run probe it shows this: RS> 2^-0^-0^-6^- ^-a^-t^- ^-1^-2^-:^-2^-1^- ^-P^-M^-"^-... Izzy is right, it's Unicode. A cheap way to clean it up (assuming you know there aren't any true Unicode chars in there) is: trim/with data "^-" Just strips all the nulls. -- Gregg
