#838 closed defect (fixed)

Null characters confuse Hemlock

Reported by: svspire Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: IDE Version: trunk
Keywords: Hemlock Cc:


A #\null character in a lisp file causes the remainder of the file (after the #\Null) to quietly not appear if you open such a file in Hemlock in the Cocoa IDE.

If you then save this file, the file gets truncated after the #\null character.

Leaving aside the issue of how such a character would find its way into a Lisp file in the first place, this is certainly poor behavior on the part of the editor. Other utilities in the IDE (like the Search Files grepper) don't seem to have a problem with #\null characters in files.
