Null character not correctly managed (bug)

The null character in a string is not correctly managed.
If you enter "AB\0DEF" in the HOME view, "AB" is displayed but when you copy the result (from the right of the screen), all the characters are displayed in the entry line.
SIZE("\0") returns 1.
SIZE("A\0BC"+"D") returns 2. So '+' doesn't managed characters after '\0'.
cat ("A","\0","B") displays "0undef0".

In my opinion the null character must be managed like other characters because the HP PPL language is an high level language, even if in C/C++ the null character is used for delimited the end of a string.

Best regards.
