Hello, I just recall, that I hade a long time ago a simular problem with a French customar. He gived me text in a file, that I should transmit to vehicles. At a certain moment he was changing to new machines, and lots of parts of text where corrupted in my logs. However in the customar's log not (he did backoffice program, and I did the gateway/mobile part).
It seemed after viewing the text files with a hex editor, in the beginning some characters where 2 byte, and in some parts of the file the same (2 byte). However moste characters where 1 byte. I hade sent someone else to him and I recall it was fixed with changing something in regional settings. It was certainly not unicode, because what I understeand of unicode is that each character is 2 byte. I will try to trace back what the engineer I sent did. Not easy... He is the kind of person who write nothing down and trust his volatile memory :) --- Rgds, Wilfried http://www.mestdagh.biz Sunday, June 5, 2005, 17:37, Francois PIETTE wrote: >> No Turkish is not 16 bit characters.
