(A follow up question can be found here: link)
In an attempt to understand how the packet encoding blocks work I tried to mimic the experiment performed by Aaron, published in this post, but reduced the flowgraph to the components that interested me the most, namely the
Packet Encoder, the
Packed to Unpacked and the
Packet Decoder. I have also used a text file
in_strings.txt instead of the
Follows the flowgraph I have implemented:
My expectation: I was hoping that
out.txt (File Sink) would be equal to
in_strings.txt (File Source).
What really happened:
out.txt is very similar to
in_strings.txt but it contains additional unwanted
x characters that show up after 65535 expected characters.
Follows a preview of the diff side by side between the input and the output:
in_strings.txt file: https://pastebin.com/NWa7NEww
I wonder why those
x's show up in the output?
Thanks in advance!
