Loading DBCS Text Files Into VB 6.0
Posted on 2008-11-15
Does anyone know how to get VB 6.0 to convert a DBCS text file into 16 bit Unicode using the DBCS code table specified in the Windows language environment settings? I'm trying to read a Big5 text file and even though I have set the language for non-Unicode programs to Chinese in Regional And Language Options in Windows, VB reads each character in the file as a single 8-bit byte (i.e., it doesn't convert dbcs byte pairs to 16-bit words).
Alternatively, Does anyone Have Any DBCS To Unicode Conversion Code For VB or C?
