Json_error_ctrl_char

Jul 7, 2011


I was using mcrypt to encrypt json_encoded data.

On other side, mycrypt was able to decrpyt data but json_decode was not working. It would throw JSON_ERROR_CTRL_CHAR error.

However, without mcrypt, json_decode worked flawlessly.

After some trial and error, I found that applying trim function after decrypting data would let me use json_decode without any issues.
