One way to sanity check delimeters is to use a capturing
regex with split:
my $delim = chr( 0 );
my @result = split /($delim)/, $input;
This will give you an array which indludes the delimeters.
Normally this is nice for generating hashes out of input.
It is also handy for checking whether the fields got through.
