Why do some text files (*.txt, and are actually only text files) show a warning in the Error list as "Binary File"?

0 votes

Most of my files in the directories I am searching are text files.
Some of those text files show warnings in the error log saying they are binary files.
How does FLP know that a file is binary? What would be in a text file that makes it think that?

Binary characters are defined as those in the range 0x00 - 0x1f (except tab 0x09). If a file contains a certain number of binary characters it will be flagged as a binary file.

If you send a sample to support@mythicsoft.com some one will have a look at it and see what the problem is.
