Hi John,

I see,
Then it looks to me that there is a problem with how the Frontend is dealing with the octal representation. The reason I am using \042 because I use it as word separator so I can get the word that \042 terminates. I tried the hex representation but I could not make it work.

Best,
J=E1nos
