Hi, I’m having some problems reading a file in Windows. The file is
encoded in CP850.
The original file has the following text:
Serial Number: 4006940900338
When reading in Windows I got the following output:
S e r i a l N u m b e r : 4 0 0 6 9 4 0 9 0 0 3 3 8
It puts lots of space in it.
When reading in Ubuntu I got the normal output
I have tried lots of different options to have the same behaviour in
Windows and Linux without luck.
The code I was using:
puts IO.read(“test.txt”, :encoding => ‘cp850’)
Not sure what to do… any help: thanks a lot!
