What it does#
Checks for strings that contain the raw control character
NUL (0 byte).
Why is this bad?#
Control characters are displayed differently by different text editors and terminals.
By using the
\0 sequence in lieu of the
NUL control character, the
string will contain the same value, but will render visibly in all editors.
