array mystery

It was apparently part of Trevor's sqlYoga, supposedly made available now as an opensource utility handler, but I can't find it. The Nabble archives show an "altPrintKeys()" function but the output is not a readable display of the structure of an array, it's designed for utility work in massaging arrays. I'd like to get hold of the original printKeys() handler somewhere. Where can I find it?

Maybe you could set the clipboarddata["rtftext"] to printkeys(myArray) and then paste the text into a text editor? You could make the array a global so you can see what it contains after the script finishes executing as well.

Weeding out null characters made no difference, and arrayEncoding/decoding made no difference, and putting the text string into a field and getting the text of the field made no difference, so it wasn't the cross-platform line delimiter issue, as I had thought. I still don't know what the problem is. The debugger shows the correct array contents, but getting the array content from a script returns empty. I'm going to use a different page-scraping approach entirely when I can stand to go back to it -- that will be a bigger job.
