I have written a small script that parses an (ugly) HTML file line by
line and converts the relevant information to CSV. During parsing, I
heavily use string concatenation to glue together parts of text that
belong together (but might be separated in the original file by tags
or newlines). In the code, the expression
$oldstring = $oldstring.$newstring
occurs very often.
Frequently, the strings get longer than 256 characters. At this point,
the string concatenation refuses to add anything to $oldstring. How is
it possible to avoid that?
Thanks in advance for answers on a (maybe very newbish) question
