Ascii Code For Termination Character For TCPServer / Client Communications?

Jan 5, 2009

I am working on a client/server based application and I have run into quite a few snags stumbling my way through I have resolved quite a few issues, and need help with something new. I am using a TCPIP client/server and I find that at the end of each loop when I am reading the data from the network stream it appends a character to the end. I have tried removing the last character but I am not sure if it is getting the whole character successfully because I still get lots of different errors both in binary and xml deserialization whcih I think is related to this. Does anyone know the ascii code for the termination character for TCPServer/Client communications?

View 6 Replies View Related - Character Support - Translate Higher ASCII Characters To Lower ASCII Characters?

Aug 7, 2009

So I have an ASP.Net ( application. It has a textbox and the user is pasting text from Microsoft Word into it. So things like the long dash (charcode 150) are coming through as input. Other examples would be the smart quotes or accented characters. In my app I'm encoding them in xml and passing that to the database as an xml parameter to a sql stored procedure. It gets inserted in the database just as the user entered it.

The problem is the app that reads this data doesn't like these characters. So I need to translate them into the lower ascii (7bit I think) character set. How do I do that? How do I determine what encoding they are in so I can do something like the following. And would just requesting the ASCII equivalent translate them intelligently or do I have to write some code for that?

Also maybe it might be easier to solve this problem in the web page to begin with. When you copy the selection of characters from Word it puts several formats in the clipboard. The straight text one is the one I want. Is there a way to have the html textbox get that text when the user pastes into it? Do I have to set the encoding of the web page somehow?

Character Encoding - Converting UTF-8 To ASCII?

Feb 20, 2009

I am writing a console application, which reads emails from different email boxes and processes through them. Emails are received from various automated systems. The email messages are logged and/or sent forward.

The problem is that some emails are encoded in UTF-8 and transfer-encoded in quoted-printable which messes up special characters (mainly ä,ö and å). I have not found any solution to convert them in readable format.

For example "ä" in quoted-printable is "=C3=A4". Using a normal conversion methods the result is "Ã" (gibberish).

I shamelessly ripped this example conversion table from here: [URL]


So how do I get the real codepoint from UTF-8 value? I'd rather not use any external libraries. Besides I've tried a couple already and they failed.

Reading Decimal Value Of An Extended Ascii Character?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm Alan and I'm writing a little program (beginner), but I'm stuck and I can't get any further. So I hope one of you guys can help me solve following problem.Let me explain what I'm making, so it can give you all a better perspective.

For a this project I'm receiving data via the RS232 communication port. So basically I receive bytes. These bytes are converted to a string. So for example I receive this:"BAA" this is good because I can get the correct decimal value for "B"(66) and "A"(65) using the command asc("A") in .NET.but sometimes I receive a character that exceeds the 0-127 limit for example ""(128) (please see [URL]..But now when I try to get the decimal value of "" I get 63 instead of 128. I searched the Internet and forums for an answer but I didn't find one that fits my problem.

So if it's possible, can one of you code experts explain me how to fix this problem ? It would help me a lot. I hope I described my problem clearly, but if there are some questions,

VS 2005 - Not Using Any Characters From Extended Ascii Character Set (128-255)

Apr 24, 2009

I want to explicitly inform my user that they are not allowed to use any characters from the extended ascii character set (128-255). When I try to create a string of these values using the following [Code] It outputs them fine, with the exception of a bunch of blanks in certain areas(I am assuming these characters are unprintable), but I noticed that when I hover over the value of sVal in the VS, the tooltip/quickview of the value is written nicely on one line. Any ideas how to remove characters that would appear to be blank spaces (unprintable) when outputting this list?

How To Modify String - Display A Minimap Made Of ASCII Character ?

I am working on a text-based game and as your character moves, you get informations such as the room name and below, a description (Lorem ipsum in the example) which is an array of string.

The game itself is made in VB.NET but a solution in pseudo-code is also welcomed. Also, each line's length is aproximatively the maximum length it must be.

The desired output must be an array of strings because this data is later send to a client connected using sockets.

Convert UINT32 To A 4 Character String?

Sep 8, 2011

I'm looking for some code to convert a UINT32 to a 4 character string (least significant byte last). The 4 bytes in the UINT32 are AscII coded.

Example: &h2e4e6574 -> ".Net"

I already made a working example using GCHandle and Marshal'ing to copy the bytes from the UINT32 to a byte array, but the code isn't all that pretty and the resulting byte array will need to be reversed before it's AscII encoded to string.
