  • Ticket #424 – Description

    initial v1  
    1 When the FlatFileParser reads files it uses the system default encoding. On my Linux machine the default is UTF-8 and on Windows the default is cp1252. This causes problems since files doesn't have to use any of these encodings but cp1252 or ISO-8859-1 is more likely than UTF-8. The first step towards solving this problem is to add a configuration option in the base.config file for the encoding to use. The second step is to make it possible to select an encoding on a per-file basis. See ticket #xxx.
