hm. pretty much - i read the lines from a text file which contains only normal
text. a sample line looks like that:
6. call_noparam 1000 runs 149453,1 ms 149,4531 ms/call
no surprise here, i think ... . Actually I also wrote the program which
produces that file, and I really didn't use unicode then. opening the file
with a text editor also does not show unicode, and I can't believe that
windows does actually manage the unicode stuff transparently to text editors.
and also I have never heard of file-attached codepage information, those would
be the only things i could imagine as a reason.
but interesting though, thanks!
