Script file charset

Postby hungerburg » Wed Sep 28, 2011 3:26 pm

In my script there are data structures that are visible to users. I want to have german umlauts in there. QCAD windows and QCAD linux use different charsets. All recent linux enviromnents default to utf-8, while windows (even 7) use something different.

How can I have umlauts display right in both worlds? Is there a way to tell QCAD Windows, that scripts are UTF-8?

QCAD should actually force the UTF-8 codec for all scripts that are read. I've filed an appropriate bug report:

Edit: From the QTextStream documentation: "By default, QTextCodec::codecForLocale() is used, and automatic unicode detection is enabled." Seems like the detection does not always work.
