CharNot()

CHARNOT()

Process each character in a string with bitwise NOT operation

Syntax

      CHARNOT( <[@]cString> ) --> cNotString

Arguments

<[@]cString> string to be processed

Returns

<cNotString> string with bitwise negated characters

Description

The CHARNOT() function constructs a new string from the string passed as parameter. To do this, it performs a bitwise NOT operation to the characters of the string and places a character in the resulting string whose ASCII value equals to the result of that operation. It can be easily seen that the resulting ASCII-value equals 255 minus input ASCII value. If the string is passed by reference, the resulting string is stored in <cString>, too. By setting the CSETREF()-switch to .T., the return value can be omitted.

Examples

      ? charnot( chr( 85 ) + chr( 128 ) + chr( 170 ) + chr( 1 ) ) 
// --> chr( 170 ) + chr( 127 ) + chr( 85 ) + chr( 254 ) ? charnot( charnot( "This is a test!" ) ) --> "This is a test!"

Tests

      charnot( chr( 85 ) + chr( 128 ) + chr( 170 ) + chr( 1 ) ) ==;
chr( 170 ) + chr( 127 ) + chr( 85 ) + chr( 254 ) charnot( charnot( "This is a test!" ) ) == "This is a test!"
