$utfdecode returns text decoded to utf8


Synopsis[edit]

$utfdecode(text,gdi)

Paramters[edit]

  • text - The text you want to encode to utf8
  • gdi - the gdi charset number representing a codepage, possible value are:
    • 000 - ANSI_CHARSET
    • 001 - DEFAULT_CHARSET
    • 002 - SYMBOL_CHARSET
    • 077 - MAC_CHARSET
    • 128 - SHIFTJIS_CHARSET
    • 129 - HANGEUL_CHARSET
    • 130 - JOHAB_CHARSET
    • 134 - GB2312_CHARSET
    • 136 - CHINESEBIG5_CHARSET
    • 161 - GREEK_CHARSET
    • 162 - TURKISH_CHARSET
    • 163 - VIETNAMESE_CHARSET
    • 177 - HEBREW_CHARSET

    • 222 - THAI_CHARSET
    • 238 - EASTEUROPE_CHARSET
    • 255 - OEM_CHARSET


Note: GDI charsets 1 and 255 are system dependent and are therefore expected to return different results across different machines. Values not on the table are treated as a reference to DEFAULT_CHARSET, equivalent to using gdi = 1.


Properties[edit]

None

Example[edit]

//echo -a $utfdecode(é)
 
; Unicode code point 915 is encoded via $utfencode() to form its UTF-8 analogue.
; The encoded sequence is implicitly decoded back to code point 915 but this is not returned immediately.
; First the abstract character GREEK CAPITAL LETTER GAMMA is resolved, then code page GREEK_CHARSET is traversed until the abstract character is found.
; GREEK CAPITAL LETTER GAMMA in GREEK_CHARSET is detected at position 195.
//echo -a $asc($utfdecode($utfencode($chr(915)), 161))
