Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to i18n woes on a very simple site

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Reuven, you're having problems with character encodings when reading in ADP files from disk, right? Did you look at Rob's and Henry's docs on AOLserver character set issues?

In particular, Henry gives an example rp_handle_adp_request proc, which reads in .adp files like so:

set mimetype [ns_guesstype [ad_conn file]]
set encoding [ns_encodingfortype $mimetype]
set fd [open [ad_conn file] r]
fconfigure $fd -encoding $encoding
set template [read $fd]
close $fd
