Lines with tildes ('~') in them are not displayed

Yeah. :P
Edit: it appears inconsistent. For example, "te~st" never displays, while "k~k" does.

Odd. It works half of the time, found out that if the 3rd character is a position of the tilde is a multiple of 3 it doesn't work.

Also, don't count spaces and index from 1.

The only thing I can think of is some sort of flaw in the base64 lib I'm using, I'll read over it..

I typed a message that had a tilde in the bad position, and it didn't display. I tried it a couple more times and it still didn't work, at which point I made this topic. Juju and I then proceeded to test it ;D
Edit: Oh, and good luck fixing it, of course :)

Stop confusing us, Deep :P
I'll be interested to know just what went wrong.
By the way, Deep Thought, what does the number three have to do with a base64 lib?
Edit: Ruler, yep, from a normal client OmnomIRC receives the lines just fine :) It can't send them, though.

In base64, each group (triplet) of three ASCII characters is represented as four B64 digits.

Oh, I see. Silly me :P (* calcdude needs to think for himself a bit more...)
I wonder if any other characters are affected...

~ is the last displayable char in the (standard) ascii set. Maybe somewhere there is an error in conversion code that makes it go out of 'bounds'.
