Input filenames containing non-ANSI characters?

Post by DFH » Tue Feb 26, 2019 2:49 am

TextPipe replaces each non-ANSI character of the input filename by U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTER.

This is most undesireable, especially for non-Roman scripts.

But even for accented ASCII letters it does this, so it's a critical limitation on it's capabilities.

Example: Input file:

Code: Select all

04  Niveroù Numbers.doc
became output file

Code: Select all

04  Nivero� Numbers.txt
Is there even a suggested workaround?
