Hi,
I understood ISO-8859-16 was among the supported encoding but I get this
error:

Encoding::ConverterNotFoundError: code converter not found for
ISO-8859-16
    org/jruby/RubyString.java:7597:in `encode'

On this line:

code = code.encode(internal_encoding) # internal_encoding = 'UTF-8'

I can read the file correctly with:

code = IO.read(path,{ :encoding => file_encoding, :mode => 'rb'}) #
file_encoding = 'ISO-8859-16'

Any thoughts?

iso-8859-16 is supported in C Ruby from commit 33993 (Dec. 9th, 2011),
please see
http://svn.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/....

It looks as if you used JRuby. Can you tell us which version?

It may be that JRuby didn't yet implement ISO-8859-16. I have cc'ed the
JRuby implementers to get their feedback.

My bad, I was using JRuby 1.7.6, the problems do not appear with the
original Ruby interpreter, version 2.0.

I have already opened an issue for JRuby.

More in details ruby 1.9.3 p 448 gives me this error:
bugtest.rb:2:in `encode': code converter not found (ISO-8859-16 to
UTF-8) (Encoding::ConverterNotFoundError)
from bugtest.rb:2:in `<main>'

Which seems to me more detailed in respect to the JRuby error.

Encoding::ConverterNotFoundError: code converter not found for
ISO-8859-16
   encode at org/jruby/RubyString.java:7597
   (root) at bugtest.rb:2

Ruby 2.0 runs smoothly instead, no errors raised.

Thanks for the redirect, Martin.

It turns out OpenJDK does not support ISO-8859-16 in its builtin
charsets, so I had to go ahead and implement one on my own. Fixed now
for JRuby 1.7.7 and master.
