How To Add White Space In A File Write....


Recommended Posts

OK,

I tried both methods outlined with the:

FILEAPPEND command

and both methods outlined above failed for me.

ALT-NUM-160 produces a strange character

and

The # method puts a # in the output datastream to the file.

I think what Larry was saying is good luck. There is no way to do this.

No it isn't, Hex 20 (Dec 32) is the space character.

I was describing the ASCII "whitespace" Hex FF (Dec 255), not the ASCII "space" Hex 20 (Dec 32).

The "whitespace" is a non-printable character that is often used in situations where a standard "space" character would cause undesirable effects due to implied translations. The ASCII standard code for the "whitespace" character within the English MS-DOS environment is 255.
