    Howdy,

    I had an issue with this code:

    Bool IsUsableCharacter(const String s)
    {
    	if(s >= "a" && s <= "z") return TRUE;
    	if(s >= "A" && s <= "Z") return TRUE;
    	if(s >= "0" && s <= "9") return TRUE;
    	if(s == "_") return TRUE;
    	
    	return FALSE;
    }
    

    ... where it returns FALSE for "z", "Z" and "9" if those characters are in the middle of the string but not if they are the last character in the string.

    The fix was to change the code to this:

    Bool IsUsableCharacter(const String s)
    {
    	if(s > "`" && s < "{") return TRUE;
    	if(s > "@" && s < "[") return TRUE;
    	if(s > "/" && s < ":") return TRUE;
    	if(s > "^" && s < "`") return TRUE;
    	
    	return FALSE;
    }
    

    Why doesn't the first code work?

    Adios,
    Cactus Dan

    Sorry, I can't reproduce this problem. My test code worked fine. Can you post some code where you pass strings to the functions?

    here my test code, small async dialog:

    Howdy,

    AHA! I was doing this:

    String subtext = text.SubStr(i, len);
    

    ... instead of like your code:

    String subtext = text.SubStr(i, 1);
    

    No wonder it wasn't working. 😊

    Adios,
