Subject: Putting a long string to an Outlook file
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I am trying to put a long string, which is being directed to an e-mail
file in outlook. At about the 250th character I, it seems that a line
break is being inserted; although sometimes the break is only visible
when I view it on my Blackberry. In this particular example, the break
is occurring right after "His" in "His father and mother". This problems
occurs with a number of strings at the approximately the same position.
I have tried breaking this into multiple put statements, etc. but it is
not working out the way I like.
put "Tolstoy's childhood was spent between Moscow and Yasnaya Polyana,
in a family of three brothers and a sister. He lost his mother when he
was two, and his father when he was nine. His subsequent education was
in the hands of his aunt, Madame Ergolsky. (His father and mother are
respectively the starting points for the characters of Nicholas Rostov
and Princess Marya in War and Peace.) In 1844, Tolstoy began studying
law and Oriental languages at Kazan University, where teachers described
him as 'both unable and unwilling to learn.' He found no meaning in
further studies and left the university in the middle of a term.";
I have tried to break this into two put statements, one ending with @@,
but this results in the second put statement on a new line, e.g.
Put "example, example" @@;
Put "example, example";
As always, any help would be greatly appreciated.
