Re: utf file to ansi, but doesn't work?
in thread utf file to ansi, but doesn't work?
I don't have a hex editor ;) (tried using one before to edit the setting on my Blackberry, but couldn't get the nack of it ;))
Is there a simple way I can check the header (i.e "type") of a file? Kinda like you can do with finding file types in images by opening them in Notepad, and then looking for stuff like "gif" etc)
The weird bit though, is that when I run the commands manually via SSH, it updates the "encoding" properly in Notepad++!
iconv --from-code UTF-8 --to-code iso-8859-15 -c /var/home/user/siteforum.com/www/admin/Plugins/Forum/Advertiser/Import/tmp/allVacations.xml.2 > /var/home/user/siteforum.com/www/admin/Plugins/GForum/Advertiser/Import/tmp/allVacations.xml.new
It wouldn't be something related to the way perl invokes this would it? Not had problems going from non-utf8 --> utf8 before, so just wondering why its having issues doing it this way around :(
