 Non-printable characters in Text widget

After discovering a chr(0) will terminate text in the Text widget, I took a
look at what it does with other non-printable characters.

use Tk;
$mw = new MainWindow();
$t = $mw->Scrolled("Text")->pack;
$output = "";
for ($i=1;$i<=255;$i++) {
        $output .= "$i=" . chr($i) . "\n";



My question is: is there a way to tell the Text widget to simply ignore
non-printable characters instead of escaping and displaying?

I do not know. What's about removing or replacing such characters in the
string, first?
