Encoding Issues Seeds.rb

Hi People,

Im running the seed.rd for the countries from here:


the
author states that the file is UTF.

When I execute the import I recieve the error: invalid multibyte char
(UTF-8)’ (from instructions here:


)

I tried adding this to the top of the file: # encoding: utf-8 but still
no
luck.

I tried the instructions here:
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!searchin/rubyonrails-talk/invalid$20multibyte$20char/rubyonrails-talk/KKXeimNmjV4/B5qfG9trqW8J

Still the same error occours.

Im using ruby: 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09) [i386-mingw32] and rails:
3.1.3 running on windows.

Any ideas what I have wrong?
Thanks,
Maxus

Your problem will probably go away if you write the following comment at
the top of the .rb file:

encoding: utf-8

Hi Juan,

I have tried that, still recieve the same error. Also noticed running
the
seed on heroku also throws the same error.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi,

    Try to reconvert the file with "iconv -f UTF-8" and add "# encoding: utf-8" to the first line....

    In case isn't working I will suggest to review the encoding of the database and maybe to force it with "encoding: UTF8"

    Regards,

Hi All,
I tried everything and was going mad. I discovered redownloading the
file
and replacing my existing one fixed it after putting the utf header in.
My
guess is editing the file on windows somehow stuffed up the encoding
(surprise surprise!).
Thank you everyone for their help!
