    • 000 - ANSI_CHARSET
    • 001 - DEFAULT_CHARSET
    • 002 - SYMBOL_CHARSET
    • 077 - MAC_CHARSET
    • 128 - SHIFTJIS_CHARSET
    • 129 - HANGEUL_CHARSET

Properties[edit]

None

Example[edit]

//echo -a $utfencode(é)
 
; Code point 195 in GREEK_CHARSET is looked up and found to have been assigned the abstract character named GREEK CAPITAL LETTER GAMMA.
; Unicode's code page is referenced and GREEK CAPITAL LETTER GAMMA is located at code point 915 (U+0393 or $chr(915) in mIRC).
; Code point 915 is now encoded using the standard procedure for UTF-8 encoding, as though $utfencode($chr(915)) was originally used.
//echo -a $utfencode($chr(195), 161)
