    Putting special characters


    How to manually put an invisible character into text file? I've downloaded notepad++, but at this moment it doesn't resolve my problem at all.

    I even tried to 'CTRL+C CTRL+V' these characters, but it doesn't work with 'NUL' . Why?

    It is a sample file with "NUL" characters. There is also the second reason, which I will describe in the next topic after resolving my current problem

    Uh, okay, whatever.

    Get yourself a hex editor.

    I don't know if I am too late with this reply, but Notepad++ also contains a hex editor
    If you are using the latest version (5.2.8) and have done a full install, then type the hex code of the special characters that you need, select them and then go to
    Code:
     plugins > converter >  Hex to ASCII
    The hex code of NULL should be 00 I think
    I'm not sure where this feature is in the older versions, but I am quite sure they contain a hex editor
