You could just use an unprintable character, or even the NULL
character to terminate a string when you write it to disk.
ie. instead of  Name : Joe~
you would write Name : Joe\0
to the disk.
There would be no way for someone to insert a NULL character, since
all this would do is terminate the string they are editing.
