Parse error while reading Applix file.
During import of an Applix as file gnumeric version 1.12.41 reports the mentioned error with this detail:
Missing characters for character encoding
After some investigation I found the reason. Applixware files are plain text files using 7-Bit encoding. Lines are limited to 80 characters. Applixware encodes non-7-bit characters using a 3 character encoding scheme with ^ as start character.
I've seen above error been triggered if this three character encoding is split with caret remaining in column 79.
