Unicode and UTF-8 Support
Article Number: 1248 | Last Updated: Tue, Jan 21, 2014 4:34 PM
UltraEdit provides support for Unicode (16-Bit wide character) files, and for UTF-8 files and allows direct editing of Unicode files and UTF-8 files as well as conversion routines between ASCII/ANSI and Unicode or UTF-8. UltraEdit attempts to detect the file type when the file is loaded. It will look for the FF FE marker for Unicode files. For UTF-8 it will look for one of the following three occurrences:
1) File marker (BOM) EF, BB, BF.
2) String occurrences "charset=utf-8" or "encoding=utf-8"
3) It will look for the occurrence of valid UTF-8 multi-byte characters in the first 64KB of a file.
If the file is found to be Unicode, it will be treated as such and the status bar will indicate this. A Unicode file saved in "big Endian" format will be indicated with "UTF-16BE". A Unicode file saved in "little Endian" format will be indicated with "UTF-16".
If the file is found to be UTF-8, it will be treated as such and converted internally to Unicode (16-Bit) for editing. The status bar will indicate this with "UTF-8". When the file is saved, it will be converted back from Unicode to UTF-8 and saved in this format.
The following conversions to and from Unicode/UTF-8 are available:
