The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft FoxBASE+ for MS-DOS 2.1
This article was previously published under Q103091
FoxBASE+ ignores the CHR(0) character when sending output to a printer.
To work around this problem, send CHR(127) to the printer.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
Run the following code:
SET PRINT ON SET PRINT TO SET PRINT TO test.txt ?CHR(27)+"YES"+CHR(0) ? SET PRINT TO SET PRINT OFF
- After the program has executed, you must quit FoxBASE+. At the MS-DOS prompt, issue the following command:
DEBUG test.txt d
The following line of hexadecimal characters will be displayed:
0D 0A 1B 79 65 73 0D 01-8B C3 48 12 B1 04 50 50 1B hex=chr(27) 79 hex=Y 65 hex=E 73 hex=S
- Press Q to quit Debug.
If the same code is executed in FoxPro versions 1.02 and later for MS-DOS, Debug will produce the following line of hexadecimal characters:
0D 0A 1B 79 65 73 00 0D-0A C3 48 12 B1 04 62 75
