Tab from clipboard

Code:
     _x64: 1
   _admin: 1
_elevated: 1

TCC  25.00.20 x64   Windows 10 [Version 10.0.18362.356]

I have a text file, with every second line indented with a tab.

When the array is loaded from a text file, and the elements are echoed, all is well.
That is, the tabs are echoed to the screen.

When the array is loaded from the clipboard, and the elements are echoed, all is not well.
That is, the tabs are not echoed to the screen, nor anything following the tab.

Is this WAD?

A quick test; I'll look more after dinner.
Code:
v:\> echo abc^r^n^tdef > clip:

v:\> type clip:
abc
        def

v:\> setarray b[3]

v:\> echo %@execarray[b,type clip:]
0

v:\> echo %b[0]
abc

v:\> echo %b[1]
        def

v:\>

Hmmm! I see what you mean. @FILEARRAY and clip: don't seem to get along.

Code:
d:\tc25> echo %@lines[clip:]
1

d:\tc25> type clip:
abc
        def

d:\tc25> setarray /f b[3]

d:\tc25> echo %@filearray[b,clip:] & REM but there are only 2 lines in clip:
3

d:\tc25> do i=0 to 2 ( echo %b[%i] )
ECHO is OFF
abc
ECHO is OFF
 
This works;
Code:
::echo Array has %@filearray[aNotes,clip:] elements.
echo %@execarray[aNotes,type clip:]
echo Array has %_execarray elements.

Thus, it would appear that if a file in the clipboard has tabs embedded, @filearray will not work with it, @execarray will.

Might want to note this in the help file.

I don't think the tabs have anything to do with it.
Code:
v:\> echo abc^r^ndef^r^nghi > clip:

v:\> echo %@lines[clip:]
2

v:\> type clip:
abc
def
ghi

v:\> setarray /f b[4]

v:\> echo %@filearray[b,clip:]
4

v:\> do i=0 to 3 ( echo %b[%i] )
ECHO is OFF
abc
ECHO is OFF
ghi

Not directly related, but if you really need to use CLIP:, you could use @CLIP[%element] instead of using an array.
