Unicode filter Remove BOM sets file has changed even when input file is without BOM

Post by DFH » Wed Jan 11, 2017 5:41 am

I just observed that the Unicode filter Remove BOM sets the file has changed flag even when input files are without BOM.

This ought not to be!

The flag should only be set if the BOM (Byte Order Mark) has actually been removed from (e.g. a UTF-8) input file.

i.e. To work correctly when the output filter is set to Generate output files Only if change occurs.

Best regards,

David

This filter has now been upgraded to provide detection of file changes.
