How do I process UTF-8 text files?

Post by chirciin67 » Thu Nov 15, 2007 11:32 pm

I'm using TextPro 6.4.1
I have this UTF-8 text:
1,"Agkistrodon (蘄蛇)",,"Body of Agkistrodon acutus (Guenther)"

I want to to change it so it looks like this:
1,"Agkistrodon" ,"(蘄蛇)",,"Body of Agkistrodon acutus (Guenther)"

Though, when i run it in the Trial Input area it convert the text and it looks like this:

1,"Agkistrodon (??)",,"Body of Agkistrodon acutus (Guenther)"

Help appreciated.

Try using TextPipe 7.8.

The trial run is ONLY designed to represent ANSI and Unicode UTF-16 text.

If you want to deal with other text representations, you must test with input from a file and output to a file.

Well, I avoided the problem by processing the file as and HTML. It worked.
