Hello Experts ..
I have a data file that has a header in ASCII, then it moves to binary.
. Without writing C/C++, Can I read this file, How ?
. Why doesn't this string return its original value ?
MyString = "fgfg";
l_MyBlob = convertToBlob( MyString );
l_MyOutput.MyString = convertFromBlob(l_MyBlob);
Thanks in advance.

Re: Streams 3, to and from binary ..2013-03-05T12:58:03Z in response to SystemAdminHi Daniel,
If you want to stay in SPL to read your file, I think you could either read the file using a FileSource in block mode, reading the file data a block at a time into a blob. A downstream operator would have to strip off the header and then parse the binary data.
I tried a quick experiment converting rstring to blob and back and I got the same result back. Can you tell me what result you got?
