Generating CReturn in xml file


#1

I am generating an xml output file from my rails app to be read in
Flash… working fine as long as I don’t have to insert a CR in a string
to be understood by Flash

Flash can understand the CR if the character is embedded (ASCII
code for CR)

so if I have a string like “Announce 14 at 04/04/2007”, it will
display correctly into my Flash object as

Announce 13
at 04/04/2007

my problem is how to generate the string, I tried :

name_label = “Announce " + proposition.id.to_s + “\nat " +
post.created_at.utc.strftime(”%d/%b/%Y”)
but it’s not working
I also tried …
name_label = “Announce " + proposition.id.to_s + " at " +
post.created_at.utc.strftime(”%d/%b/%Y")
not working
… how can I put this character sequence as it ?

thanks for your help

“\r” is character 13. “\n” is character 10.

$ irb1.8
irb(main):001:0> “\r”[0]
=> 13

thanks Brian… I was mixin chracter sets… \r is the right one
… it runs very well…
my Flash app is very happy to get it…

“\r” is character 13. “\n” is character 10.

$ irb1.8
irb(main):001:0> “\r”[0]
=> 13
