Using shell_exec to create output file adds 2 questions marks to the end of filename
(PHP Version 5.3.3-7+squeeze15)
I am very very new to PHP, so I appreciate the patience and assistance.
For the following block of code, for some reason two question marks ("??") are being appended to the end of the filename of the output file when it is created on disk.
So instead of the filename being something like...
...the filename is...
(emphasis on the trailing questions marks)
Thank you for your help!
$arg1_TEST1 = $_REQUEST['arg1'];
$arg2_TEST2 = $_REQUEST['arg2'];
$arg3_TEST3 = $_REQUEST['arg3'];
date > ./$FILENAME
echo '.$arg1_TEST1.':'.$arg2_TEST2.':'.$arg3_TEST3.' >> ./$FILENAME
date >> ./$FILENAME

$arg3_TEST3 almost certainly has some non-printable characters at the end of it.
