    Changes to the Monarch Utility?

    Data Kruncher

      While experimenting with possible solutions for  [url="http://mails.datawatch.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=001580"]Kelly's trapping problem[/url], I attempted to use the Monarch Utility to prepare the text for the solution I wanted to test.

       

      I had in mind that we might be able to make some progress with moving the bracketed codes to their own lines before modeling. To do so, I wanted to replace each occurence of the existing { characters with a carriage return and a {. Then a second pass would replace the } character with a } and a carriage return. This should have been done with replace strings of /013/013 respectively, while specifying the ASCII character set.

       

      Oddly, the Utility program installed with V9 Pro did not process this.

       

      Frustrated, thinking that perhaps I wasn't formatting the control codes properly or something, I tried [b]exactly[/b][/i] the same strings with the Utility program installed with V8 Pro.

       

      It worked just as I intended.

       

      Also, I could not find anything in the online help about specifying ASCII control codes with the Utility program. I am only aware of this technique because of  [url="http://mails.datawatch.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=001251;p=1#000004"]an old post of Mike's[/url], which uses Hexadecimal notation. I used the ASCII notation in  [url="http://mails.datawatch.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=001461;p=1#000001"]a solution this past January[/url].

       

      Have changes been made to the Utility program in this respect, or have I stumbled upon something else?

       

      Thanks,
