• UTF-8 nodelist make

    From Michiel van der Vlist@2:280/5555 to Eugene Subbotin on Sat Oct 1 00:39:59 2016
    Hello Eugene,

    Friday September 30 2016 22:26, I wrote to you:

    Of course your script should look different since you are converting
    to CP866 and should take care of the characters not present in CP866. Maybe someting like:

    The below script BTW, is a real life script that I use to generate the ASCII version of my segment of the nodelist. Scroll down...

    s/©/(C)/g
    s/®/(R)/g
    s/ü/u/g
    s/ø/o/g
    s/ö/o/g
    s/ä/a/g
    s/ë/e/g
    s/é/e/g
    s/è/e/g
    s/ij/ij/g
    s/IJ/IJ/g
    s/æ/ae/g
    s/ß/ss/g
    s/µ/micro/g
    s/π/pi/g
    s/Π/Pi/g
    s/²/^2/g
    s/³/^3/g
    s/ƒ/f/g
    s/£/GPB/g
    s/¥/Yen/g
    s/€/EUR/g
    s//o/g
    s//o/g
    s/ /_/g

    When I make changes to my segment of the nodelist, I make the changes in the UTF-8 version only. I then run the script above to make an "ascified" version from it. That way I make sure that the UTF-8 version and the ASCII version are always synchronised.

    I don't trust myself to not make errors when having to make the same changes to two files. ;-)


    Cheers, Michiel

    Hello All,

    [..]
    s/Ô/o/g
    s/ö/o/g

    I was asked to present the script with hex values for "funny characters", but that is too much work and too error prone. I have to do that manually.

    Instead I have made the script available for download and viewing.

    http://www.vlist.eu/downloads/fidolist/ascifi.sed

    If your browser supports UTF-8 (I don't know one that doesn't) you can see the script as I created it with winvi.

    Oh, wait... you were actually displaying a capital A with ring, an a umlaut and an o umlaut. Now it makes sense. ;-)

    Yes, I know. But there's no way to change that in HotDog.

    Nope, but it is not very configurable.

    So you could ask the author to display '4' instead of '2' in the case ou UTF-8?

    I believe someone just did. :)

    You may read the authors comment on the hotdoged echo.

    I am not linked to that echo and have no interest in linking. It is not on Ozmosis either, so I can't read it..

    So what did he say?
