View Full Version : Multiple and Multibyte Support

01-25-2005, 08:49 PM
PhpDig with multiple and multibyte support is right around the corner, assuming time is available.

Below is a list of encodings that PhpDig should soon support, converting non UTF-8 encodings on the list to UTF-8, and then writing UTF-8 information to the tables and files.

Note that some encodings have multiple names. For example, CP936 is like GB2312, so it is up to you to crosscheck your encodings to see if they are on the list.

Also, when PhpDig with multiple and multibyte support is released, it will initially be an experimental version.

Likely additional requirements are as follows:

- MySQL 4.1.7+ with UTF-8 and ability for SET queries
- PHP 4.3.10+ with mbstring, mbstr-enc-trans, mbregex
- Apache with Linux 2.4.26+ and htaccess file ability
- Understanding of iconv to convert files and tables

Mikolaj Jedrzejak kindly gave permission to incorporate ConvertCharset (http://mikolajj.republika.pl/) into PhpDig. The plan is to use this class to convert encodings not handled by PHP itself. Thanks to Mikolaj!

EDIT: PhpDig 1.8.8 RC1 supports multiple and multibyte encodings.
