Relatively new to Ruby as in 2 weeks so this may be dead obvious but
have not found any results in my searches
I use the net/http to get a bit of xml from a website that I put in
The xml is ISO-5589-1 encoded so on windows I have to run an
now when I run the same script on “Linux ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24
patchlevel 111) [x86_64-linux]”
The characters appear garbled. For the characters to be clear I need
to take out the Iconv call.
Is there a way of detecting what is the platforms character encoding
so that I can skip the conversion step if they match?
Thanking you in advance.
