ascii to unicode text file conversion
Posted on 1998-07-31
Hi, I am looking for a utility to convert text files from ascii to unicode. I have tried the native2ascii (-reverse) util that comes with JDK but it doesn't cut it. I want to process directories of files at a time, that util does 1 at a time. I wrote a small program to run this util for every file in a dir but it runs way too slow and it then screws up my files.
If there isn't a decent util like that around, i'll pay many more points for a nice perl
script or C file (if you write it in C-> i'm using linux kernel 2.0.35 in slackware with libc5). I could do this in Java but won't bother if someone gives me a perl or C file.
Thanks in advance
