I tried to export a PBL using LibraryExport function but it fails to export all the code.
I also tried to read the PBL as a text file but it reads all the null characters and also some garbage values which are not in the Code.

No I am trying to read the PBL line by line and not 32k chunks.
Regenerating does not solve the problem.
Library export only reads till 1733 lines approx.

That could very well be close to 32k. What version of PB? If u are using 16bit PB, then string varible can only hold upto 32K of data.
