How change encoding?

hi everybody,

please help…

i have a file (Documentação.txt) with this structure:

my_data << [0, “Ação”, Zlib::Deflate.deflate(“Sample Text!!!”)].to_a
my_data << [0, “Test”, Zlib::Deflate.deflate(“Only ASCII
chars!!!”)].to_a
my_data << [0, “Test char Á”, Zlib::Deflate.deflate(“New test
(Á)”)].to_a

OBS: i not create this file!!!

and i have this code:

require ‘fileutils’
require ‘zlib’
DestFile = “D:\temp\app\Documentação.txt”
my_read_data = File.open(DestFile, ‘rb’) { |f| Marshal.load f }
my_read_data.each do |item|
file_path = “D:\temp\app\new_files_” + item[1] + “.txt”
file_text = Zlib::Inflate.inflate(item[2])
File.open(file_path, ‘wb’) { |file| file.write(file_text) }
end

the result is

new_files_AþÒo.txt
new_files_Test.txt
new_files_Test char â”´.txt

and not

new_files_Ação.txt
new_files_Test.txt
new_files_Test char Á.txt

why this occurs?

is the encode???

how change ?

OBS: i do not create the file Documentação.txt. i only read it.

PS. be patient. i’m “very” newbiee in ruby.

(Á)")].to_a
 file_path = “D:\temp\app\new_files_” + item[1] + “.txt”
 file_text = Zlib::Inflate.inflate(item[2])
 File.open(file_path, ‘wb’) { |file| file.write(file_text) }

I’d say you probably rather should open this file in text mode since
you are looking at it in text mode - maybe with a particular encoding
(see link below).

new_files_Ação.txt
new_files_Test.txt
new_files_Test char Á.txt

why this occurs?

is the encode???

Likely.

how change ?

James has an excellent blog posting about this:
