What delimiter to use with hadoop files

I'm trying to parse a flat file with a special delimiter that I pulled from hadoop. It's called the ^A character but that didn't work.
I've already tried:
?\u0007?
These don't work in talend: \u0000, '\u0000', "\u0000", ^@, ^A.
Anyone got this working?

More attempts that don't work:
'\0'+"" and '\0'. Notepad++ shows this nonprintable character as SOH character. Any ideas how to properly identify this?

Ok finally got it thanks to http://mindprod.com/jgloss/ascii.html.
for tFileInputDelimited set the delimter as: Character.toString('\1') .
It chokes if you just put in '\1' so you have to turn it into a String first.
