I would like to process a GUI field input that contains a non-printing ASCII character. It is actually from barcode being read into a GUI field that is then picked up by an ABAP program e.g. in readable format looks like this: 123456789 but actually contains a non-printing ASCII character (ASCII char 29) used as a data separator e.g. 1234<sep>567<sep>89.
I would like to parse the input using ABAP at the non-printing ASCII character so that I have 3 variables A=1234 & B=567 & C=89.
How should I best tackle this?
Thanks but this will not split at the ASCII char as 29 can be included in my string.
To clarify: I would like to read in a non printable ASCII character and process this in ABAP. Not just parse at a regular character.
Isn't LF usually read into a string variable in ABAP as '##' or something?
