Code page 1147 ?

Post by DFH »

In the Convert to and from Unicode filter, the dropdown selectors show no title for code page 1147.

I think this is a bug in the GUI.
Unless I'm mistaken, the name should be (IBM EBCDIC 1147-1/695-1 France).

There are a number of Windows installed code pages that Windows does not provide descriptions for - we have no idea why they chose to do this.

But now that I've found the description....

Surely you can do a little research yourselves?

After investigation, we've found that the code pages without descriptions are those that are supported but not installed, so we've added a message e.g. '1147 NOT INSTALLED' to reflect this.

Beyond the simple literal meaning, what does "supported but not installed" really mean in practice for ordinary TextPipe users?

It's Windows terminology, not TextPipe's. Windows 'can' support the identified code page, but support is not currently installed.
