Binary files contain plain text and binary characters, such as control codes (characters below ASCII code 32). The Unstructured Data Filter supports binary characters. You can use binary characters to define fields positions, and you can also use binary characters for field values.

Typical example would be data export from a legacy system, in which the data for each label is delimited with a Form Feed character <FF>.


In this case, Automation trigger captures the print stream. The yellow-highlighted data section must be extracted from the stream and sent to a different printer. The filter is configured to search for <FF> as field-end position.
