Percentage character not read from txt file

Post by Zim »

Hi Gents
I have a text file that has a % symbol in it, but wlog and file.read can't see it. Is there a way around this?

Thanks

What is the exact content of the file?

The % has a special meaning in html so this could be the problem

Use the debug window to see the content of the variable or use print

print file.read$("/date.txt") --> 12345678999full (should read 123456789 99% full)

no errors in serial window

print "12 3%" --> 12 3% ( print function does show spaces and %)

Are you using the ESP8266?

I cannot reproduce the problem on the ESP32, i've just tried with Wokwi and WLOG "%" works
