I have a Windows PC, and recently, while I was reading a file in my program this error code, 0x1a, came up. I don’t seem to find information about it anywhere, so if someone can provide me with what it is and how to fix it, it will be of great help.

What Does The Hexadecimal Notation 0x1a Mean And How To Fix It?

It is not an error code, it is a control character called SUB, and it represents CTRL+Z. It was used back in the day of the telegraph and is used even now to indicate a character that a compiler or your program cannot understand.

If your input data is coming from some Windows compatible file and contains a hard character, then this can occur. To prevent this, use a data converter like dos2Unix that will replace the end of file characters that are compatible with the Linux System. You can also try converting this file into .csv format for finding out OS-dependent characters. Then open it using a text editor like Notepad++.
