Ascii with DOS expansion

Recommended Posts



Following problem...

1. Create a file called "µ.txt" in some dir, lets choose C:\Autoit\µ.txt

2. Run "cmd /c dir C:\Autoit /A /B /O>C:\error.txt"

3. Run "notepad C:\Autoit\error.txt"

4. You'll see a file called "æ.txt"

Thats because several years ago, when Ascii was normal standart, microsoft decided to expand it for dos.

So Ascii with DOS expansion was born.

But the values of Ascii+DOS chars are different to ANSI / UTF chars. Thus, a wrong char is shown.

You can see that the "µ" in the left row is a "æ" in the right row.

How to make it work???
