Filemaker is handling the following string in a peculiar fashion.
When using a HyperCard Script to get information from one of my stacks the following string is generated
End card "X3723290" HyperCard says this string has 3 words in it.
So far so good.
Now my HyperCard program also puts a return after this string
Now this (along with a lot of other information) is put into a file and moved over to the machine running Filemaker
I have a way to get any particular line in the file I want. When i put this (value/line) into a variable $XrefLineToInspect and then evaluate
WordCount($XrefLineToInspect) I get 4
When I ask for the value of the variable $XrefLineToInspect in the debugger I get
End card "X3723290"
RightWords($XrefLineToInspect;1) gives X3723290
RightWords($XrefLineToInspect;2) gives "X3723290
RightWords($XrefLineToInspect;3) gives card "X3723290
The trailing quote is missing in all 3. They must be counting the " as a word
What in the world is going on?
This is of particular importance as I'm using a test of the equality of the last two words in
End card "X3723290" and Begin card "X3723290" as a way to leave a loop which tells me how many lines to put in a new record.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
