Binary Agents what am I missing?

Tell us what’s happening:
The message is printed out and is a type of string but it does not pass.
Also when I tested to see if my result and the target result were the same, I got a false.

Your code so far


function binaryAgent(str) {
let split = str.split(' ')
let result = ''

for(let i= 0; i < str.length; i++){
  result += String.fromCharCode(parseInt(split[i],2))
}
return result
}

let test = binaryAgent("01001001 00100000 01101100 01101111 01110110 01100101 00100000 01000110 01110010 01100101 01100101 01000011 01101111 01100100 01100101 01000011 01100001 01101101 01110000 00100001");

console.log(test)
console.log("I love FreeCodeCamp!")
console.log("I love FreeCodeCamp!" === test)

you may want to check your loop

your result is

and you get \u0000 when passing an invalid value to fromCharCode

THAT’S IT! thankyou, how did you get the extra \u0000 to display?

I usually use the object literal shorthand to see what is being printed, in this case I used console.log({str, result}) just above the return statement and then run the tests

thanks a lot, that will be very useful
