hidden characters in a string

60
Hi Guys,

I am reading a file (say file1) to extract strings and use them to search the lines in file2 that contain them. I get an error that the strings are not there in file2 but I know that they are there. When I just use grep on the command line and type the string of an interest and file2 as an input file I get the corresponding line.

I HAVE A FEELING THAT PYTHON IS INSERTING EXTRACT HIDDEN CHARACTERS WHILE READING FILE1. WHO CAN I AVOID THIS

I think this is unlikely. Perhaps you could produce some code for us to examine?
