I have no idea what the '1c'x is doing but if you don't need it, could you
remove it from the _infile_ using Compress before you apply prxmatch?

Subject: Can one ignore '1c'x character
I'm probably overlooking something simple. I'm inputting the first 12,000
characters of some files and using a regular expression to find the
"Exif". However, in some of the files, there is a character '1c'x that is
causing the prxmatch function to return a value that results in a position
N characters past the '1c'x, rather than the actual position in the file.
I'm reading the string in as $char12000. and RECFM=N.
Can anyone provide a clue regarding what I am overlooking?
Thanks in advance,
