in reply to Encoding issues

1) If I want use a different encoding, this new encoding will have assigned different bits to each character than UTF-8 encoding. How can I apply this new encoding with input device (keyboard) as keyboard is already typing according to UTF-8 ?

Encode::from_to can translate UTF-8 into other encodings.

Secondly, if I want to type Hindi characters using different character encoding, how can I do that if I don't have Hindi keyboard ?

Producing Hindi characters is a question the input method that your operating system (or editor, or terminal, or whatever) offer, and usually not tied to a particular encoding.

You would do well to read up about the different subsytems that are involved (the operating system's input methods, key codes, character encodings), because you seem to mix them up right now.

[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
