IntyBASIC Invalid Extra Characters?


Recommended Posts

I am too anal-retentive to let this one go. When I build an IntyBASIC .bas, I often get a message that looks like

 

Warning: invalid extra characters in line 22
Warning: invalid extra characters in line 23
Warning: invalid extra characters in line 24
Warning: invalid extra characters in line 27
Warning: invalid extra characters in line 28
Warning: invalid extra characters in line 29

 

 

But I cannot seem to find the characters. The programs work normally. I can't see spaces or control characters, and it does not appear everywhere in code, only on certain lines at certain times. But once the warning appears for a line, I cannot seem to get it to go away.

 

I'm running on Windoze 10, using UltraEdit and also Notepad.

 

 

Thanks.

There are non-breakable spaces in your source code, Unicode 0xa0.

 

I think Atariage forums insert these automatically replacing spaces on the left side of source code marked with CODE tag.

 

The easiest way to get rid of them is to select manually one of these and replace with a single space in your editor.

Something to consider for a future revision of the compiler: support multiple line-break characters, and treat non-breakable spaces as whitespace. ;)
