Can not read the whole txt file content

Sat Jun 19, 2021 1:31 pm

On my raspberry i'm writing logs in txt file. And sometimes some wird character is written in file that my code does not read then the whole file.

First two images are from respberry where only first line is readed. In last picture i copy file to windows and open with notepad++ and see all lines. I also see some null,null,... after the line i was able to read.

In production we can not copy files to windows thats why i need urgent fix,...

Not an easy thing to help with without seeing the code that writes the file.
Can you show the code?

On the rpi 'hexdump -Cv' (and 'less') will save you copying the file to a PC.

As it looks like there may be zero character codes in there it'll be likely your code is writing nul and/or null. You need to post the relevant code section for help.
