: In the sample data of the book database, the Author ID and Units Sold fields are seperated by a tab and a space. This trips an assert on my filemanager (class that reads in data) because it expects an integer and instead gets a space.
Hm... since you're reading an integer value, I'd expect you to use extract (>>) and that would skip any leading whitespace.
And while I could make it ignore spaces, that might screw up reading in the author names which are supposed to have spaces. So is this an error in the sample data, or a problem we'll have to be able to deal with?
