Reading a text file as-is into a text field

Question asked by scodoc on Jun 1, 2014

I have a device which outputs data through a serial port as text and is captured by an ASCII terminal program. The text may contain multiple LF and not necessarily CRLF pairs, along with a few other ASCII codes (codes below 20h). The pattern of these is important for decoding the data from the text. I want to read a text file into a text field raw without any processing such as converting CRLF pairs into a single CR.

 

I tried using Scriptworks Read File Contents, but it also pre-processes the text.

 

Any suggestions how to get a raw text file into a text field?
