Output file in ANSI Encoding.

Hi,

I have created a serch and replace program which works fine with normal text files.

But it doesn't work with oracle database dump files because I think they are ANSI encoded.

Can someone body please point me in the right direction.

My program;

Gets source file

Gets find and replace strings.

Makes a copy of the source file saves all the replaced matched sequences in the new file.

    Your problem is most likely an encoding problem.

    Unfortunately there is usually no automated way to solve this unless you have a way to know the encoding of all your input files.

    Read [this excellent introduction into Unicode|http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/Unicode.html] for an explanation.
