[IronPython] Unable to compare two junk character string in Iron Python.Do I need to include any particular encoding.??

An iron python script may sometimes retrieve values that
may contain junk values such as “The Urbane fjnadlfkjsdglk
pfjsdfgolsdg á é ú”.

Or you may assign such junk values to a variable ex:
Artist = “The Urbane fjnadlfkjsdglk pfjsdfgolsdg á é ú”.

 

When you try to save the file we encounter an error which
says “Invalid encoding, ascii saving as UTF-8”

 

Solution:

Close the script(.py)

Open it now with note pad

Click save as

You can see “Encoding” option 

Select “Unicode” and click save

 

Run the script, it will work fine.

 

Note: You will not be able to open the script again with
IDE. You can open it using note pad

This is the answer soem one has given to me , and it worked too....

Saurabh,

first of all, you did not provide an error message, but it looks like a
decoding/unicode issue.

Visit:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/368805/python-unicodedecodeerror-am-i-misunderstanding-encode
The first answer should help a lot.

Furthermore, this seems to be good literature on the field:
http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/Unicode.html
http://docs.python.org/howto/unicode.html

Regarding the application of # -*- coding: coding -*-, read here:
http://www.network-theory.co.uk/docs/pytut/SourceCodeEncoding.html

So, in your case it looks like a good idea to use e.g. UTF-8 as source
encoding. Check the settings of the text editor you are using and set
the source encoding to UTF-8 (if it does not allow this, you should use
another editor). Then, tell (Iron)Python that your source code is
encoded by UTF-8 by putting this into the file header: # -*- coding:
utf-8 -*-.

Cheers,

Jan-Philip
