I have a script that reads formatted text from a Github release description. The text has bullets, some non-ASCII characters, etc. When I look at the string, the special characters are escaped (\r, etc). When I try to write this entire text block to another Github release, it fails with an "error parsing Json" error.
I believe this has to do with either a Conten-type header or UTF encoding, which I'm not fully familiar with.
Is there a straight-forward way in Matlab to read and write formatted text "as-is"?
