Encoding in Sublime

Encoding in Sublime

Postby selyn on Wed Apr 18, 2012 4:22 pm

Hi all,

I just changed to Sublime Text 2 recently and am still testing it.

I have to program some weird software including the specific Encoding DOS CP-850 (Western European / IBM ...) and need the editor show the view in that encoding (e.g. display "äöü" also as "äöü" and not some crazy crack).

Now I need some help. How can I change the Encoding View or something like that?

already tried:
* EncodingHelper-Package: it just turn the document to UTF-8. But I need it in CP850 ...
* add in Main.sublime-menu in the .config/sublime-text-2/Packages/Default/ Folder after
Code: Select all
"caption": "Reopen with Encoding",

this line
Code: Select all
{ "caption": "CP 850", "command": "reopen", "args": {"encoding": "DOS (CP 850)" } },

As already said, I just started with Sublime, so I dont know very much about it :/

Hope Anyone can help

Unfortunately, Codepage 850 isn't one of the supported encodings

Python support more encodings, including cp850.

EncodingHelper plugin is already able to open a cp850 encoded file and convert it to utf8 (I suppose as I don't use it), so now what you need is a plugin to write the file back as cp850 encoding and not utf8.
I think a plugin that do that (or an expanded version of EncodingHelper) will be useful for some people, but I've no time now to look at it.

Not having support for CP850 is kind of a deal breaker for me (being Swedish). Unfortunate since Sublime Text looks like it could be the first editor I would be willing to pay for. :cry:

Will CP850 be supported in Sublime Text 3?
