AL11 File Save Problem

Good morning everybody,

I've again ran into a problem using AL11. While exporting my file unconverted I seem to be losing white space.

I'm writing an ecryption program that operates using ASCII Characters 32 to 126, spaces included.

1) After program execution, the white space character is in the string at the end


2) When I export to HTML format, it appears that the white space is still there


3) When I export uncoverted to text file, the white space is removed.


The text file on the application server is then transferred using a windows batch file to another location where it can be decrypted using a key. However, the problem is that since whitespace at the end is shaved, It kind of ruins the decryption and message.

I'm thinking that the space is still there on the text file that is on the application server because the space is exported when going to HTML, but I can't access the file directly, only this way which.

So, my question being is white-space at the end of lines trimmed upon export from AL11? Is there a way to avoid this?
