converting UTF8 <---> MBCS in Hebrew under Unix
Posted on 2002-03-24
I need help!
We have a software that works on the windows (the application) and on the unix (the server - DB oracle).
We need to save strings in UTF8 format. We have no problems doing that @ the Window's side: we can convert from MBCS to UTF8 in order to save the string in the DB. And on loading the string from the DB we have no problems to convert back from UTF8 to MBCS in order to display it. We do it with a written function, that one of its params is a locale: the language sign. In the Windows, we don't have to give the locale and the funciton using the default (?) which works! In the Unix, no matter what we do - the function returns error (ether the locale is missing - when we don't give - or the locale is wrong - when we give the hebrew one).
We REALLY don't care using other function. We jusy want to convert UTF8 to/from MBCS formats for hebrew strings under unix.
Please H E L P!
