If they all failed it could be because you have an additional conversion you don't know about. I assume you are using System. We use Google Analytics and StatCounter for site usage analytics. But for my purposes, this didn't actually turn out to matter. Which characters are being mis-converted? It is difficult to mention a popular library.
In any case, the way you did it, encoded a string to a byte array with one character set, and then decoding it with another, will not work, as you see. If you have the correct encoding in the string, you need not do more to get the bytes for another encoding. I wish to be able to convert and not see the output. So the conversion is pretty simple. Double check you don't have unexpected conversion along the way and so consider that. Nevertheless, after backing up the files, the following workflow should work. Can you tell us more about where that original string comes from, and why you think it has been encoded wrong? There is no problem with any character.
The mapping is pretty straightforward, as you can see. There is no simple one line method. Don't forget to save the new file. We got space for millions of topics. I think that the implementation could look tidier if you dealt with pointers instead of offsets.
The second byte starts from 0x80 and ends in 0xbf for both 0xc2 and 0xc3. You can't do illegal or shady things with our tools. Read b, 0, length ; For a start, you should always use the return value of Stream. Instead you have raw data Bytes which represent text in some encoding. The byte encoding, however, is not exactly the same.
Thanks for contributing an answer to Stack Overflow! So, you might consider to convert your files from latin-1 to utf-8. If the character code is above 127, we need two bytes. Open your tex-file in a normal texteditor e. If you prefer to work with a command line, you can have a look at iconv: Hi gusmmattos, welcome to the forum! On a Mac, I use the terminal application for it. .
Just one character is not : the apostrophe. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong, or know a better way of doing this? But basically it's a varying width character encoding, meaning that the amount of bytes a character takes depends on the character. If general-purpose charset frameworks like iconv are too bloated for you, roll your own. I have to scan hundreds of files. Not to be reproduced for commercial purposes without written permission. Since this can potentially increase string length, doing it in place would be rather inconvenient.
I tried to convert a block of text from iso-8859-1 to utf-8 but all I got after the convertion is gibberish. For added benefit, you can do it in two passes: pass one determines the necessary target string size, pass two performs the translation. You can mess things up quite easily. Is there any way to decode this information, or maybe some configuration that should be done to get the right result. Such a command is written in Command Prompt. There is no server-side processing at all. What should be changed to improve quality? I have googled on this topic and I have looked at every answer, but I still don't get it.
We use your browser's local storage to save tools' input. Making the writeup was clearly worth it! Unlike many other tools, we made our tools free, without ads, and with the simplest possible user interface. Send message ;} Tags: , , 2017-11-23. As always, my first solution: Google. Is there something equivalent in Unix that can do the job? Use to adjust the byte array before attempting to decode it into your destination encoding. If you know which characters you need to fix requires knowing the spelling of the words you could possible develop an matrix of replacements.
You need to fix the source of the string in the first place. Although I dislike dynamic allocation, I think this is a case where it makes sense always to allocate a new string in the function. I just need a simple convertion system preferably back and forth for these 2 charsets. The encoding of the future i. Remarks: I am using Visual Studio 2010, Windows 8.
