Script file encoding

Post by CVH » Sun Mar 22, 2020 11:33 pm

Interesting to know, also seen some related topics and other less related as the multi line command pasting.
The problem in this topic was the umlaut sign is encoded different in ANSI.
Qcad reads the script as if it is encoded in UTF-8.

Could also be the reason that some of my coding fails at specific points.
Getting my own code back by a fresh install it seems no longer to be an issue....
Developing further the same issues popped up.

Next effort I will enforce NPP to use UTF-8 and see where that brings us.
Avoiding UTF-8 BOM because the BOM is again a windows thing.
