I have tried with codecs, but when i use encoding="utf-8" i get this error on
word : život
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\getcontent.py", line 43, in <module>
File "C:\Python25\Lib\codecs.py", line 626, in readlines
File "C:\Python25\Lib\codecs.py", line 535, in readlines
data = self.read()
File "C:\Python25\Lib\codecs.py", line 424, in read
newchars, decodedbytes = self.decode(data, self.errors)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0x9e in position 0:
unexpected code byte
i just need to read from file1.txt, process (its simple text processing) some
words and write them to file2.txt without loss of croatian characters. (šđžčć)
