I am trying to import data from text files and several of the files
contain accented e’s.
I am reading the files through the File object. My MySQL db is setup
as UTF8. On Rails 2.0.2.
The error I get is "incorrect string value: ‘\xE9…’ for column XXX
This would seem to indicate that the file did not open with the proper
encoding but I don’t see anything in the File class that would let me
Anyone have any ideas?
