web-based unicode conversion

Post by Fouad Alfarhan »

Because of the nature of our work, we use MAC systems extensivly. We have a system on MAC that write text files in (ASMO 449) ISO-8859-6 format to a directory. On our windows system, we wrote a PHP application that will go through these directories and import the files to MSSQL database.

We need the system to convert the text files from ASMO 449) ISO-8859-6 to Unicode before storing it in the database.

Can TEXTPIPE help us doing that without any human intervintion? If not, i would really appreciate it if you could share with me your recommendation.

Hi Fouad,

Yes, TextPipe can certainly do all this. It can be automated both from the command line and via scripting from another application.

To perform this conversion,
1. Click Filters\Unicode\Convert to/from Unicode (this adds a new filter)
2. Select ISO-8859-6 in the Convert FROM box
3. Select UTF-16 in the Convert TO box.

Then add your file or folder to the Files to Process tab and click [Go].
