I am using CSV in a rake task (db:seed) on Rails 3.0.3, Ruby 1.9.2 to
read a file with some funny chars in it. Upon breaking in at a point
where the row read using CSV is in variable row, with the string with
the char in row['price'] I get the following strange results which I
So it appears that "xA3" and row['price'] are both strings of
length 1 and both contain the byte value 163 yet "xA3" is definitely
greater than row['price']
If I do c1 = row['price'] and c2 = "xA3" I still get the same
effect. The variables c1 and c2 contain the same data but are
different when compared.
No doubt I am doing something stupid, if someone could point out what,
then I would be most grateful.
