FUP vs. fileio

Okay, comments from the newbie here, but oh well. I just thought I'd 
say that I much prefer FUP's ability to input binary characters in 
normal strings. 
   I don't use it a great deal, but when I do, I generally make sure I 
know what I'm doing, so as to not corrupt the database as 
mentioned before. (this is fairly hard to do accidentally, isn't it? 
seems like it)
   It's also fairly useful for when you /need/ binary characters, for 
example, when installing ANSI. (It refers to a chr() patch that you 
can get, as an alternative... anyone know where this can be 
    I dunno about the rest of you, but the MOO's form of binary 
strings just don't cut it for me. :) Now, if only binary strings 
could be displayed as binary without having to set the whole 
connection binary. (ick)

Anyway, that's just my comment on the matter. :)
