So the thing arrived when i created an XML file out of an XLS, the column those had a trailing space (*by mistake left an space there) are replaced by a character like "|
" (appears in bold) and does looked like a pipe'|' .
The file has email addresses like:
and the spaces entry is like:
when i tried search for a trailing space in the file i came across this issue as if egrep didnt showed up anything:
egrep -i 'COM[ \t]|NET[ \t]|ORG[ \t]|IN[ \t]' filename
i tried searching for a pipe character but again nothing!!
when i copied that particular line and pasted in UI editor it was just an space and nothing else there!! but visible on console :P some ghost character!!! :P
Anyone have any idea what was this behavior like and how to get rid of it??
